PLATONIC SOLIDS 5 PIECE SET (SACRED GEOMETRY) - CITRINE
1 box of 5 crystal platonic solids with information
Each approx. 2 cm. Box measures 19 cm x 4 cm x 3.5 cm
There are five platonic solids in this set and their names are derived from their numbers of faces. The wooden box has 5 drilled holes to protect each crystal and closes with a clasp. The inside lid of the box identifies each piece.
In Euclidean geometry, a Platonic solid is a regular, convex polyhedron. The faces are congruent, regular polygons, with the same number of faces meeting at each vertex.
The aesthetic beauty and symmetry of the Platonic solids have made them a favorite subject of geometers for thousands of years. They are named for the ancient Greek philosopher Plato, who theorized that the classical elements were constructed from the regular solids.
According to Stephen Skinner, the study of sacred geometry has its roots in the study of nature and the mathematical principles at work therein. Many forms observed in nature can be related to geometry, for example, the chambered nautilus grows at a constant rate and so its shell forms a logarithmic spiral to accommodate that growth without changing shape. Also, honeybees construct hexagonal cells to hold their honey. These and other correspondences are seen by believers in sacred geometry to be further proof of the cosmic significance of geometric forms. These phenomena can be explained through natural principles.
This citrine, is a heat treated amethyst, an affordable alternative to natural citrine which is relatively rare. It shows a range of translucent colors from sunny yellow to brown.
Citrine is considered the "merchant stone" due to it's ability to promote abundance, creativity and power. It also stimulates the crown chakra and is therefore helpful in stimulating the mind. It also helps align the chakras and balances energy.
