Icosahedron Platonic Solid - Golden Tiger Eye - This cut and polished Icosahedron is made from Golden Tiger Eye in China. Known as a stone of protection, especially for travelers, Tiger Eye brings good luck and prosperity to the user. Ancients used Tiger Eye as a talisman against bad luck and curses. It also attracts abundance and can also stimulate the rise of Kundalini energies. Golden Tiger Eye is a powerful Solar Plexus Chakra stone, helpful in manifesting ideas into reality and giving courage in times of change. Use Golden Tiger Eye with the Solar Plexus Chakra to increase your personal power. With intention, surround a lit green candle with Tiger Eye to attract prosperity.
The Icosahedron's shape can be found in nature in the form of various viruses. It can be used as a meditation aid, either by holding it in the palm of your hand and/or by studying it and projecting the self into the crystal. Plato assigned the Icosahedron to represent the element of water, and it is said to offer help in balancing the emotions. Working with the Icosahedron can also help facilitate a regenerating, healing energy into physical reality.
It is a polyhedron, made up of twenty equilateral triangles that are arranged around a single point, with twelve vertices, thirty edges, and twenty faces. The Icosahedron is the fourth most simplest solid that can be created in 3D, 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.
