Geometry has long had ties to various cultures and religions, seen in many iconic structures around the world - each shape has a distinct meaning. When utilized in a crystal form they are perfect for healing and transformation. Each crystal has its own properties - so the various shapes will hold different meaning in different forms.
The Shapes are broken down as follows:
Tetrahedron (AKA: Triangular Pyramid): This shape represents the element of fire and is liked to the Solar Plexus; the center of your own personal power and acceptance. It creates a balance between your physical and spiritual self. It also is the perfect geometric shape for balance and stability.
Hexahedron (AKA: Cube): This shape is associated with the element Earth and is corresponding with your Root Chakra. This shape is grounding and helps you to maintain focus and remove tension. It will also reconnect your energies to Earth and Nature.
Octahedron: This represents the element of Air and is linked to your heart chakra which is the center of love and compassion for others. We access all of our healing power from the heart chakra. Working with this shape will align you with your spiritual self and help you understand the true nature of your actions.
Icosohedron: This is representative of the element water and corresponds to your Sacral Chakra. Water is all about fluid movement and ever changing cycles. This shape will help your creativity flourish. It removes emotional blockages that disrupt your creative energy. It allows freedom of expression, and positive change to occur effortlessly within us all.
Dodecahedron: This is linked to the spirit or universe and works with the higher Chakras, including the Third Eye, Crown, and above. It is used for meditation considering the vibrational energy will raise you to your higher consciousness. The shape is an expression of life and consciousness, allowing you to travel beyond your physical body.
In conjunction with these shapes, the type of crystal they are formed with will magnify or enhance the workings of these shapes.
Quartz for example, magnifies all those around it. Therefore, it will amplify and assist these shapes in helping to heal and transform you.
Where Amethyst, will help you to heal your body and open your chakras. Working specifically on your physical self and allowing it to become one with your spirituality.
