The metaphysical properties of Granite

You don’t have to be a geologist or psychic medium to understand that cultures throughout history have regarded stones are precious objects. You might conventionally think of impressive stones as the ones that are in expensive jewelry. These stones are regarded as rare, beautiful and containing a certainly level of purity. However, the diamond has only been in vogue for less than a hundred years, and this is due to PR alone ultimately.

To understand how highly cultures have regarded stones, it is best to look at holy structures that have been made. The stones at Stonehenge were gathered from hundreds of miles away, even those the area has perfectly fine stones indigenous to that region. Why would they put in such effort to get that particular stone? Also, did you know that the Great Pyramid of Giza is made of limestone, but the innermost King’s Chamber is formed with granite?

Theories position granite as a very special stone. Here are some noteworthy facts and ideas surrounding granite.

Cultures that have highly regarded granite are the Aboriginals, Mayans and Ancient Egyptians.

As stated above, the Egyptians had access to the Aswan granite, which is partly from by the Nile. Theories suggest that the life giving source that is the Nile River receives spiritual properties from the Aswan granite.
