Dodecahedron Platonic Solid - Amethyst - This cut and polished Dodecahedron is made from Amethyst in China. Amethyst is very powerful and protective. Known in ancient times as the "stone of sobriety," Amethyst was used to recover from both physical addictions as well as addictive relationships. Amethyst can encourage inner strength and relieve stress, and is a popular metaphysical stone. The strong healing powers of Amethyst can transmute lower vibrations to higher frequencies, transforming negative energy to love energy. Amethyst clears and repairs holes in the aura, draws in Divine energy, and aligns and fosters cooperation between energy bodies.
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.
Note: The proportions for our sacred geometry crystals are not exact. Please see the pictures on this page to see the slightly different shapes.
