back to Orgite Creations
I like to experiment a lot with when casting orgite, not only with molds and shapes, but also with different metal shavings and powders. Sometimes my customers ask me what a certain metal does. In other words, what are its spiritual, or energetic properties? That is difficult to answer. I have found that different people feel an affinity to different metals. That is because they feel attracted to a certain metal because their unconscious is telling them that they need this particular energy. It is not necessary to know what that the spiritual properties of that metal are. But human beings are curious, and they want want to know a little more.
Copper is associated with the planet Venus, and the element of Water. It is primarily used for healing, luck and love. often associated with goddesses.
Copper is a good electrical conductor, and can be used to transfer spiritual energies too.
In the traditional seven planet system, aluminum is ruled by Mercury and the element Air. When the invisible planets are taken into account, aluminum is then associated with Uranus. Astrologically, modern interpretations associate Uranus with the principles of genius, individuality, new and unconventional ideas.
In my search of the properties of aetheric energies and metals, I have found more than once that aluminum strongly reflects aetheric energies, much more than any other metal. In the magical sense, aluminum can deflect incoming energies, and thus is strongly protective.
My own experience is that magnesium has very strong, expansive energies.
Magnesium is associated with the Sun.
Magnesium is a light weight metal that burns extremely hot, with a brilliant light.
Magnetite s also called lodestone. It is ruled by Venus and the element of Water.
Magnetite is a form of iron oxide. It is the most magnetic of all the naturally-occurring minerals on Earth.
Lodestone's basic use in magic is attraction. In the past it was widely used to enhance one's virility. It also adds power to magic endeavers.
The lodestone, owing to its magnetic powers, is used to draw out disease and pain from the body.
In humans, a cluster of nerves and magnetite crystals is present in front of the pituitary gland, behind the ethmoid sinus. Their physical design make us sensitive to magnetic fields.
Titanium has a strong energy. Maybe this is due to its high strength and resistance to corrosion. When used in alloys, it provides great strength and at the same time it is light in weight.
I find that silver has a nice, smooth, healing quality to it. My wife's favorite pendant is made with silver powder.
Silver is associated with the moon, emotions, and moon goddesses. It is also connected with psychic abilities. It reflects negativity away from the wearer.
Silver destroys every known virus on contact. It destroys harmful fungus and bacteria while keeping healthy tissue and good bacteria intact. Much has been written, discovered, and experienced about colloidal silver being the world's most powerful antibiotic. The body also uses silver to heal damaged tissue.
Bronze is an alloy of copper and tin, and thus combines the properties of both metals. For copper see above.
Tin is associated with the planet Jupiter, and the element of Air. This planet is associated with abundance, prosperity, growth and success. Jupiter the planet of healing, regeneration and rejuvenation.
Tin was used for divination. Molten tin was poured into water, and the resulting solidified shapes would serve as a scrying method to divine the future of find answers to questions.
Tin is also carried as a good-luck piece.
Tin shines with a silvery sheen, it is a stable
metal and does not oxidize. It has curiously contrasting properties;
although soft and pliable (its softness lies between lead and gold) it
has a crystalline structure of great inner strength. It also has a
brittle quality; when bent, it makes a crackling sound described as the
‘tin cry’ as the inner crystals rub against each other.
I have found that tungsten in orgonite has a calming and grounding effect.
Tungsten is a hard, rare metal. It has the highest melting point of all metals. It has a very high density, comparable to that of gold and uranium, and thus is quite heavy. It is used in light bulbs because it readily converts electricity into light. It is also used to shield against high energy radiations (radio-activity).
I find antimony on my orgonite pieces as being of a positive and uplifting spirit.
Antimony is ruled by the Sun and the element Fire. It is primarily used for protection and strengthening.
It is a protective metal and teaches the values of transformation and adaptability. It teaches of wisdom and strength that can be gained from others and also given in return. Antimony represents the free spirit, wild nature or animal power dwelling within all humans.
From an astrological
point of view, antimony is associated with an uplifted and redeemed Saturn.
For Rudolf Steiner, antimony was „the human metal“, as like no other metal
it stands between heaven and earth like man and therefore is strongly analogous
to his nature. According to Steiner, antimony therefore has universal and
all-embracing power for humans.
Iron is associated with the planet Mars, and the element of Fire. In magic iron was used for its very strong projective energies. Iron nails and other objects were used to ward of evil beings, or unhealthy energies from one's home. An example of this is the iron horseshoe above a door. Iron would also draw illnesses out of the body.
Iron is present in the center of the Earth. Therefore, you can use iron as a grounding tool for earthbound work and at the same time, as a universal tool for other work.
The chief commercial uses for selenium today are in glassmaking and in pigments. Bit selenium is also a semiconductor and is used in photocells. This is because the electrical resistance of selenium is dependent on the ambient light. In other words the available light determines the electricity flow in selenium.
The heart, kidney, lung, liver, pancreas, and muscle contain very high levels of selenium as a component of glutathione. The highest levels of selenium are found in the liver. The second highest levels are in the eyes. Apparently, selenium is important in eye lens to prevent cataracts or other eye problems. Selenium is also present in some proteins.
Cobalt-based blue pigments have been used since ancient times for jewelry and paints, and to impart a distinctive blue tint to glass
Cobalt is radiant, powerful and extremely psychically active.
Cobalt is the active center of coenzymes called cobalamins, the most common example of which is vitamin B12. As such it is an essential trace dietary mineral. Vitamin B12, also called cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin with a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. It is one of the eight B vitamins. It is normally involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body, especially affecting DNA synthesis and regulation, but also fatty acid metabolism and amino acid metabolism.
Cobalt in present in the pineal gland in trace concentration.
It is also interesting to note that cobalt is one of the three naturally magnetic metals, iron and nickel are the others. Although not studied yet, cobalt in Vitamin B12 might interface with natural weak magnetic fields. Because cobalt is present in the pineal gland, it might play a key role in the circadian rhythms which are regulated by the pineal gland, but it might also tie in with what is known as the third eye and its spiritual vision, and spiritual characteristics it is known for.
Bismuth is the strongest natural diamagnetic element. Diamagnetic means that it creates a magnetic field in opposition to an externally applied magnetic field.
The spiral, stair-stepped structure of bismuth crystals is the result of a higher growth rate around the outside edges than on the inside edges. The variations in the thickness of the oxide layer that forms on the surface of the crystal causes different wavelengths of light to interfere upon reflection, thus displaying a rainbow of colors.
Some people see bismuth as helping in transformation, as a connection to the crown chakra, and helping in the transition to the astral plane.
Tourmaline is a new mineral as it was unknown to ancient magicians.
Tourmaline is a semi-precious stone, and thus not a metal. I use black tourmaline, or schorl, powder in my orgite pieces. The modern magicians and other energy practitioners have quickly recognized that black tourmaline is very effective as a protective stone.
Personally I feel that it brings a very nice energy to the orgite.
