Tetrahedron Platonic Solid – Red Jasper


This cut and polished Tetrahedron crystal is made from Red Jasper from China. The most striking example of the Tetrahedron found in nature is the carbon atom, which forms this pattern, and is the most basic building block of life as we know it. Plato assigned the Tetrahedron to represent the element of fire. 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. The Tetrahedron is said to be symbolic of system and can thus help bring order into one’s life.

Red Jasper is a very calming stone and stimulates the Root Chakra. Many Native American cultures consider Red Jasper to symbolize the blood of the Earth, and this tumbled stone is full of grounding Earth energy. A gentle stone, Red Jasper works slowly but surely, and is a good stone to ground anyone overly sensitive to crystalline energy. Red Jasper aids in resolving difficult situations and can be used to ground and stabilize the Aura.

The Tetrahedron is the most basic solid that can be created in 3D. It is a polyhedron, made up of four equilateral triangles that are arranged around a single point, with four vertices and four sides. The Tetrahedron is the very simplest form 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.
