Icosahedron - D20
20 faced Platonic Solid; Representing the element of Water; navel Chakra; key function is Transformation.
This is a super-high grade - Brazilian - clear quartz crystal (all natural); Beautiful Icosahedron D20 - hand crafted in Brazil.
Clear quartz the hallmark stone of all the stones; still one of my most favorites! Clear quartz crystal, so versatile in its applications - please google to amaze yourself with its many uses. Melody’s Love Is in the Earth has many pages devoted to quartz crystal and the quartz family.
The icosahedron is my favorite shape of the various polyhedrals. The element is water, and the icosahedron’s key function is transformation! I feel a greater sense of well being and wholeness! The quality of this quartz crystal is excellent!
The ever popular Sacred Geometry shape Icosahedron, a polyhedron, a platonic solid (which was described by Plato); the icosahedron has 20 triangular faces (all equilateral triangles); 30 edges, 12 vertices (corner points) at each vertex - 5 edges meet. The element associated with the icosahedron is the element of water.
Even though Plato is the one in history best known for the association and “discovery” of Platonic Solids; we know ancient humans knew of their existence long before Plato. For example, a 1000 years before Plato; the platonic solids were shaped out of rock by Neolithic peoples of Britain; the behemoth structures of the Great Pyramids; and of course Stonehenge, and many other sacred sights on the planet.
In Sacred Geometry Robert Lawlor, 1982, page 96: “As Gordon Plummer notes in his book The Mathematics of the Cosmic Mind, the Hindu tradition associates the icosahedron with the Purusha.* Purusha is the seed - image of Brahma, the supreme creator himself, and as such this image is the map or plan of the universe. The Purusha is analogous to the Cosmic Human, the Anthropocosm of the western esoteric tradition. The icosahedron is the obvious choice for this first form, since all other volumes arise naturally out of it.”
Quartz - silicon dioxide crystallizing in prismatic hexagonal crystals; “Quartz has both piezoelectric (pronounced pie-ee-zo) and pyroelectric properties; the polarity of the quartz crystal will change when it is subjected to pressure or heat, as well as when it is held in the hand - the tip, normally positive and receiving energy, will then change and become negative, thus emitting energy which will radiate from the tip or from an edge... Quartz can be used to dispel static electricity... produces a naturally balanced, solid-state energy field... Quartz can be used to amplify body energy and thoughts... is said to bring the energy of the stars into the soul... harmonize and align human energies - thoughts, consciousness, emotions... connection between the physical dimension and the dimensions of the mind.... create altered states of consciousness... clear and activate the energy center of the body... ancient priests used quartz crystals to render negative energy impotent”.
