Dodecahedron Platonic Solid - Smokey Quartz - This cut and polished Dodecahedron Crystal is light Smokey Quartz from Brazil.
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.
Sacred Geometry is found in nature, in art, and in ancient civilizations. It can be seen in crop circles, classic art, prayer wheels, mandalas, and DNA. It is found in the grand design of the cosmos (as evidenced by the relationships between the planets in our own solar system) and is thought by many to be the language of the Creator. Some scientists theorize that Sacred Geometry is proof of a holographic universe. Connecting with Sacred Geometry is said to wake up the sleeping memory of our true, infinite selves.
Many people believe that enlightenment can be achieved through the study of Sacred Geometry. Looking at any of the endless examples of Sacred Geometry in existence can resonate with one's deeper self, bringing about new patterns of thought and a deep knowing of the perfection and cohesion of the Universe. By meditating with any or all of the Platonic Solids, one can form a deep connection with the nature of our universe, and easily find ways to incorporate this new knowledge into daily life. The Sacred Geometry of these cuts combined with the Sacred Geometry inherent in the Quartz crystalline formation creates quite a powerful metaphysical piece!
