*I’m giving you this knowledge because I would like to share my grid using the Platonic Solids. Mine are made from clear quartz and black obsidian.

*I was having problems keeping the sphere in place, so I took it out but it goes on top.

Did you draw your grid?


No I bought a bunch from my teachers store at Mimosa Spirit


This is digging deep into crystals! :star_struck: Gosh, there really is so much to learn about them. Those are some big words in the list of the five regular solids! :laughing: Thanks for sharing this knowledge, Christina- it is fascinating to learn about :grin::open_book:


There’s so much to learn. I try to help to make it easier to understand so that everyone else doesn’t have to spend the money that I did. :money_with_wings:
