The icosahedron is my favorite shape of the various polyhedrals! When I hold it, and meditate with it, I feel a greater sense of well being and wholeness! I have carried an icosahedron in my front left pocket for many years. These are all natural rose quartz gemstone.
The rose quartz is Brazilian rose quartz. These are hand crafted by artisans in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Because, they are hand crafted each one is slightly different in size.
We have taken pictures of one of the slightly smaller ones and a typical nice quality of rose quartz. You will receive a 2 3/4 inch X 3 3/4 inch black velvety bag with your icosahedron.

When held in one’s hand, setting one’s intention on opening up the heart and allowing one’s Love to expand throughout one’s being!
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.”
* “The Purusha is all that yet hath been and all that is to be” - Ralph T.H. Griffith
