Octahedron Platonic Solid lattice Pendant hand sculpted to resemble carved stone or crystal with round polished facets.
Ancient Greek philosophers & mathematicians such as Empedocles, Archytas, Pythagoras & Plato believed that these 5 unique geometries, which constitute the only perfectly symmetrical arrangements of a set of (non-planar) points in space were the very fundamental 'building blocks' of the universe, underlying all creation.
These shapes are woven into the very fabric of nature & are recognized components of Sacred Geometry which ascribes symbolic & sacred meanings to certain geometric shapes & proportions.
Indeed, recognition & belief in the quintessential importance of such geometries predates Greek civilisation & can be seen throughout ancient history & across cultures, with depictions & explicit traces of their influence being found in the art, architecture & musical theories of Sumerian, Babylonian, Minoan, Phoenician, Egyptian, Mayan, Celtic, Indian & Chinese civilisations.
The 5 Platonic Solids have also been equated with the 'chakras' (a system of vital energetic vortexes believed to operate within the human body on a subtle energetic level), while modern examination has revealed their inextricable relationship to sound (cymatics), microscopic organisms & subatomic particles, further validating there Profundity.
