Sacred Sri Yantra // Fair Trade Carved Crystal // CHOOSE FROM: Amethyst, Rose Quartz, White Quartz // Ancient Symbol of Spiritual Balance, Golden Ratio, Manifestation, Divinity
A Yantra is a mathematically perfect sacred geometrical design, and the Sri Yantra is considered the "Mother" of them all. This particular symbol is over 12,000 years old, and contains a center point from which all other geometrical shapes and designs radiate. The word "Yantra" comes from the root "yam" meaning "instrument," and the "tra" comes from the meaning "release from bondage." The Sri Yantra is at its core, a vessel to help us find spiritual connection. In spiritual work, these symbols are used to balance the right and left sides of the brain, the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine (resulting in perfect spiritual balance), and to focus our minds on spiritual work and concepts so that as humans we can benefit from our own divine nature. The Sri Yantra is a tool to give humans a wider view of the totality of existence; in its form, it maps out the material journey we are each on as incarnations in the human form. Working with and internalizing the symbols is a way to find true unity with the cosmos - and the piece of ourselves that is cosmos.
The Sri Yantra design is physically based on the Golden Ratio - everything exists in perfect balance and harmony in nature, and thus in the mathematical precision of the Sri Yantra. The Golden/Phi ratio is present in nature, but also in many great works of art (Leonardo Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man, and the Mona Lisa), as well as the architectural feats of the position of the Pyramids of Giza.
In its central portion, the Sri Yantra contains nine triangles. Four point upward and represent the Divine Masculine (Shiva); Five point downward and represent the Divine Feminine (Shakti). Used in the Shri Vidya school of Hinduism, these nine interlocking triangles surround the central point (known as a Bindu) and is surrounded by two circles of lotus petals. Together, the triangles represent the vastness of the cosmos and the human body alike. When carved into stone, the Sri Yantra emits an even higher vibration, one that is aligned with the metaphysical properties of the crystal itself.
This is a collection of Sri Yantra carvings is handmade from the most beautiful three quartzes, a magnifier, mimic, and amplifier of energy (white), unconditional love (rose) and peace, balance, and higher wisdom (amethyst). In this form, the quartz raises the vibration of the Sri Yantra even higher, and channels energy strongly and effectively. You can program your quartz Sri Yantra for more specific work and purpose in alignment with your goals and the stone you choose.

Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered the elements and more for untold number of years, and I cannot guarantee perfection or perfect points. These are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered.
