If Elon Musk and Grimes were Minerals, Which Would They Be?

We all know who Elon Musk is and whenever someone mentions his name, usually the planet Mars or Tesla comes to mind. He’s the genius who built SpaceX and never gave up on his dreams.


I am a fan of his and since I write about gems and minerals (I make jewelry with them so it makes sense to share my bits of knowledge with the world) why not combine the two?


Would he be a Martian Opal, or maybe Tranquillityite? Or a Meteorite? Perhaps a Tektite. 

I think he would be a Moldavite and here is why. Moldavite is known as the stone of transformation. It will literally shake up your life. I’ve heard many Moldavite stories and even have my own experiences with this cool rock. Here’s the breakdown:

Moldavite is associated with the Holy Grail legend and is considered to be the ’emerald’ that fell from the sky mentioned in the grail legends.

Moldavite literally changed the world when it’s mother asteroid crash-landed about 15 million years ago (I’ve mistakenly said 6 million before but it’s 15 million). If it were to fall today, we would face mass extinction.

Moldavite is a rare stone.

Moldavite is considered the only gemstone to be from space. Gemstones are minerals and crystals that can be cut and faceted.


How Elon Musk Is Like Moldavite



Elon Musk co-founded Tesla Motors and has revolutionized the auto industry. Sure people were jumping on the EV fad here and there, but Elon is using Tesla to do more than just create electric cars. He literally is changing the world for the better.

Tesla is involved in many projects around the world that help people access lower cost electricity using solar power. Australia and recently Puerto Rico have benefited from Tesla.

Moldavite is known as the gem that came from space and Elon wants to advance the human race into a space faring species. I’ve seen many posts asking if he’s an alien and begging him to take them ‘home’ to Mars or space. His story with SpaceX is incredible.

He wanted to create affordable rockets. So he did. He literally built them–without any degree in rocket science–but then again, all you have to do is read and study material. It is out there.

Both Elon and the mineral Moldavite make you think of someone that not only goes after what they want, but the leave behind an impact that can be felt all throughout history.


What About Grimes?


Grimes is a creative genius. Not only is she beautiful, but her voice is very ethereal. She make me think of a faerie queen. I’ve never even heard of her until Elon started talking about her music and dating her. (Super happy for them by the way!)

Update on Grimes--she's also doing a lot to help fight climate change and you can support her by shopping in her eBay store (click here!)

When I think of Grimes, I just think of a kaleidoscopic melody that would be multiple colors like the Aura Quartz family.

Grimes is so vibrant and never has the same look. When you look at any of the aqua aura crystals, you always see many facets of colors. Sure they will have a primary color but on a second glance,  you see all the details.

Aura crystals are quartz crystals that have been put into a vacuum chamber where the crystal is heated to 1600 °F in the vacuum. Once it’s heated then gold vapor (or titanium, platinum, niobium, just to name a few) is added into the mix. The metal atoms fuse to the crystal’s surface which gives it its colorful do-over.

When doing it with titanium, electricity is added into the mix so there is very little heat used. It’s really a cool process that I would love to try one day (with someone who knows what they are doing, of course).
