Red Soapstone Incense Tower & Holder
These beautifully coloured incense towers are hand-carved and painted red; made from gorara stone they each have a spiraling floral design and a floral carving on the top. They have a smooth feel and are quite weighty; this would make a lovely ornament in any room, as a centerpiece or on the mantelpiece.
The tower lifts off the base of the tower, and the base as can be seen from the pictures above can hold upto 5 incense sticks. We recommend using bamboo-centered incense sticks for these towers; anything thicker unfortunately will not fit in the base.
Please Note: Because these items are hand-carved, each item is unique and the colour may vary due to the stone used. Every tower has been hand-painted and because of this you may find occasional paint smudges.

Diameter of the tower at the widest point of the base is approximately 7.5cm (3"), height of the tower is approximately 26.5cm (10.5"). This tower is fairly sturdy and quite weighty; it weighs approximately 720g (without packaging).

Dictionary Terms Explained
- Passion, energy, power
Colours can affect our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states, both consciously and unconsciously. We can use colours to help us feel better, to inject an element of vitality into our life, or to calm strong feelings and promote a sense of peace and relaxation.
The colour red is typically associated with a range of emotions and states of being, including: energy, passion, love, joy, vitality, health, strength, power, fire, aggression and danger. Different people perceive colours in different ways, so you may have other associations, which are equally valid.
Throughout ancient traditions, red has been a dominant colour, symbolising both positivity and negativity. It's been used to represent the colour of gods of sun and war and is often associated with power. In China it was the emblem of the Chou dynasty and was thought of as being one of the luckiest colours. In Christianity red is associated with the act of sacrifice, representing the blood of Christ who died on the cross. Red is a particularly dominant colour in the Tarot.
The colour has links with passion and sexuality, too. Hearts are usually depicted as red and it features widely in the annual celebration of St. Valentine's Day, and in Greece it was the colour of the phallic God, Priapus. Young North American Indians traditionally painted themselves in red, believing it would increase their strength and desire.
As far as the chakras go, red is the colour used to symbolise the base chakra.
