What is Orgonite?
Orgonite is the name of a compound made in a resin base containing a variety of metal shavings and can be created with different gemstones and crystals. The combination of these materials results in a powerful tool that is charged with life force and that has the ability to transform negative energy into positive energy in its immediate environment. Orgonite can be made in many shapes and sizes and has a number of energetic and healing uses.
The Purpose of Orgonite
Orgonite is a healing tool that can transform an environment into one that has a more positive frequency of energy, as well as balance and harmonize one's emotional and subtle bodies.
The History of Orgonite
What we called Orgonite today is based on the research of Dr. Wilhelm Reich, an Austrian psychiatrist and scientist who conducted his research in the 1930’s and 40’s. Reich used the name “orgone” for what other disciplines might call "life force," "chi," "energy," or "source." He built orgone accumulators by combining organic substances, like fiberglass, with inorganic substances, like steel wool. The combination of organic and inorganic substances would become orgone generators.
Years later, Don and Carol Croft, a couple that studied Dr. Reich’s research, and combined it with further research of their own, discovered that by pouring fiberglass resin into molds with metal shavings they could create mini orgone collectors, similar to what Reich had done with his larger orgone accumulators. Carol Croft added crystals and gemstones to the compound, increasing its ability to transform negative energy into positive energy.
How Does Orgonite Work?
Each Orgonite I create has a quartz crystal / quartz crystals in the center which is the master crystal/crystals of the orgonite (larger Orgonites or oval shape pendants also have a magnet wire wrapped around the single point quartz or DT quartz crystal). When the resin dries around the metal shavings and the crystals, the resin shrinks, putting pressure on the crystal. As a result of this pressure, the endpoints of the crystal become electrically polarized. This is known as a piezoelectric effect, and it is this electrical charge boosts the positive energy in Orgonite. By using different crystals and gemstones, as well as other types of energetically charged materials in addition to the main crystal/crystals, the energy of the Orgonite can be tailored to an individual's needs as it transforms energy from negative to positive, creating a more harmonious environment wherever it is placed.
Tips for Care of Orgonite
Please, do not leave Orgonite under the Strong direct Sun light or in water.
It contains small parts, metals and gemstones. Orgonite is not a toy for young children.
Usually, you do not need to cleanse Orgonite, but after heavy use and if you feel, you can put Orgonite under running water for a few minutes and towel dry. Or if you wish you can place Orgonite under the gentle early morning sunlight but just to be aware using sunlight can cause some color fading for some gem stones.
