Dimensions: The box containing the clear quartz platonic solids is about 19 cms (7.5 inches) long.
Each of the five platonic shapes obviously has different length sides but as a generalisation each shape has sides of in between 1-2 cms long. You can get a fairly good idea of size by looking at the photo with the hand.
This set comprises of five clear quartz carved shapes. They are made from clear quartz, which is natural. The crystal is almost totally clear, although you may find the odd wisp inside that will simply reassure you that this is crystal and not glass.
Dictionary Terms Explained
- Five sacred geometrical shapes
A platonic solid is a three-dimensional shape whose faces are all congruent regular polygons (two-dimensional shapes bounded by straight line segments) where the same number of faces meet at every angle. The Greeks are believed to have been the first to discover that there are only five platonic solids. These are:
Tetrahedron (three triangles meet at each vertex)
Octahedron (four triangles meet at each vertex)
Icosahedron (five triangles meet at each vertex)
Hexahedron or Cube (three squares meet at each vertex)
Dodecahedron (three pentagons meet at each vertex)
In his work Plato linked the five platonic solids to the elements. Tetrahedron represents fire (also spirit), the cube earth, the octahedron is air (also can be seen as mental planes), icosahedron represents water (emotions) and the dodecahedron represents the constellations and heavens (universe). As a group the platonic solids are in balance and can be used in healing or simply in your home or place of work to give focus to the idea of bringing the four elements and the fifth universal element (some may call God) into balance within you.
Clear quartz is also referred to as Crystal Quartz or Rock Quartz. As a healing tool clear quartz combines well with nearly all other crystals. Words that are used to describe the properties of clear quartz are spiritual, divine, cleansing, focussing, higher power, programmable, psychic, balancing and healing.
Clear quartz as a term is often used to describe some clear quartz that does have markings or milkiness within it. The reason for that is to distinguish it from other quartz derived crystals such as amethyst, rose quartz, citrine, aventurine etc.
Some refer to it as the master healer stone and It is one of the main tools used by crystal healers because of its balancing and cleansing / neutralising properties. It is good to hold or have around whenever you feel foggy, uncertain or would like to see your way more clearly. It is one of the most frequently used crystals by healers because of its wide-ranging benefits.

Reviews - rated 5/5 based on customer reviews5 out of 5 By Jeannette, StaffordThe Platonic Geometry 5 piece quartz set is incredible. I have been into Sacred Geometry for years and have never seen the shapes in crystal before so find these quiet exquisite. Thanks again.
5 out of 5 By Rainbow MumI have bought this as a present for someone, so can't comment on how useful they are BUT the quality is fabulous. The crystals are well cut & thank heavens there are a few 'flaws' in the quartz or you could be forgiven for thinking they were made of glass. The box itself is gorgeous, highly polished, very substantial & well made. I would think any crystal enthusiast would welcome these into their home.
