Dodecahedron Platonic Solid - Black Onyx - This cut and polished Dodecahedron is made from Black Onyx in China. A powerful protection stone, Black Onyx absorbs and transforms negative energy, and helps to prevent the drain of personal energy. Black Onyx aids the development of emotional and physical strength and stamina, especially when support is needed during times of stress. Black Onyx fosters wise decision making.
Use Black Onyx for working with the Root Chakra, for grounding, and to help realize material goals. Black Onyx is a good stone for anyone with a strong presence of Saturn in his/her natal chart. This is a strength-giving stone and can provide support for self discipline issues. Because it helps to hold physical memories, Black Onyx can be useful in healing old wounds or past life issues.
The Dodecahedron is a great source of inspiration for many students of metaphysics. It can be seen as the perfect unification of the cube and the sphere, and thus between the finite and the infinite. Plato assigned the Dodecahedron to the element of Ether, or Spirit, while some prefer to ascribe it to the Universe. In either case, meditating with the Dodecahedron can bring the contemplation of the universe, as well as a sense of wholeness.
The Dodecahedron is a polyhedron, made up of twelve equilateral pentagons around a central point, and has twenty vertices and thirty edges. The Dodecahedron is the most complex solid that can be created in 3D from the same equilateral, equiangular polygons, and is one of the Platonic Solids, as defined by Plato over 2300 years ago (427-347BC). Platonic Solids are all of the three-dimensional solid shapes that you can create using faces that are identical regular polygons. These Platonic Solid shapes are also known as three-dimensional polytopes, and are said to carry the Sacred Geometry that is believed to be the secret language of the Universe.
Note: The proportions for our sacred geometry crystals are not exact. Please see the pictures on this page to see the slightly different shapes.
