People often comment that my orgonite has a lot of shavings as compared to other jewelry and pyramids on the market. The recommended guidelines for making good orgonite is to use a 50-50 ratio of metal to resin to create orgonite. My orgone pieces may contain crystals, stones, shells, etc, however, the basic rule is that orgonite should contain a 50-50 mix of metals and resin.
Orgonite is based on Dr Wilhelm Reich’s discovery that organic material (resin) attracts orgone energy, while inorganic material (metal) simultaneously repels it. By mixing metal and resin, the molecules begin to vibrate at different molecular frequencies creating friction. This vibration moves the EMR in our environments out of the electromagnetic spectrum and shifts it into the etheric realm where it ceases to exist as EMF and is purified. When this newly purified energy flows out of the orgone device, our environments become balanced and life enhancing. Look for orgonite that has a good balanced mix of resin to metal ratio.
Metal shavings are the best option for metal in orgonite. Most serious orgonite makers recognize the potency lies in the type of shavings used and the good ratio to resin mixture. It’s important to consider the size of the shavings. The more surface area the metal has the more effective it will be in transforming energy. That is why powdered metal is not desirable as it can be less efficient – absorbing more negative energy than it cleans.
Many people use BBs in their orgonite. My understanding is that it is the uneven shavings with their sharp edges that is important for piercing the etheric realms. However, this is a personal choice. Choose shavings, if possible, that range from small to large. (avoid nuts, bolts, screws and nails)
Aluminum is the main metal I use in my orgonite. I use steel shavings and Copper as well. Aluminum is the most commonly used metal in orgonite making. People ask if aluminum is safe to use. Many people who make orgonite and those who are sensitive to energy will tell you that aluminum is fine to use.
As stated on the Warrior Matrix forum: Emlong explains, ‘Aluminum is all about context. It is one of the most abundant elements on earth. Most clays are alumina, and many minerals are aluminosilicates. Were aluminum inherently bad our planet and much of the universe would be a constant Hell for biological organisms. Of course, in certain forms and in certain relationships aluminum can be toxic, but that is true of most any element in the periodic table. In orgonite, I personally find that aluminum brings a sort of “high” energy as compared to copper which feels more grounded. Some of us like to mix the two.’
