Icosahedron Platonic Solid - Orange Aventurine - These are Orange Aventurine Icosahedrons that are cut and polished in China. Orange Aventurine is considered a stone of good luck, fortune, and a manifestor of exciting new possibilities. It has been called the "Whisper Stone" since the energy of this stone helps to quiet the critical and judgmental inner voice. Orange Aventurine also calms and stills the mind of inner chatter when preparing for and during meditation.
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.
Note: The proportions for our sacred geometry crystals are not exact. Please see the pictures on this page to see the slightly different shapes.
