Octahedron Platonic Solid Crystal - Red Jasper - This cut and polished Octahedron crystal made from Red Jasper from China. The Octahedron can be described as being made up of two square-based pyramids, placed base to base. It can be found in the natural formations of Fluorite crystals.
Red Jasper is a very calming stone and stimulates the Root Chakra. Many Native American cultures consider Red Jasper to symbolize the blood of the Earth, and this tumbled stone is full of grounding Earth energy. A gentle stone, Red Jasper works slowly but surely, and is a good stone to ground anyone overly sensitive to crystalline energy. Red Jasper aids in resolving difficult situations and can be used to ground and stabilize the Aura.
Octahedrons 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 Octahedron to represent the element of air, and it is said to help with cleansing and detoxification. The Octahedron is a polyhedron, made up of eight equilateral triangles that are arranged around a single point, with six vertices, eight faces, and twelve edges.
The Octahedron is the third most simplest 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.
