Octahedron Platonic Solid - Lt. Smokey Quartz - We received a few Smokey Quartz cut and polished Octahedrons from Brazil along with our Clear Quartz and only have a few in inventory.
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. 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 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.
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. *Our Octahedrons are measured tip-to-tip
