Shungite 5 elements set 20-30mm
Our Shungite 5 elements sets come in two sizes – 20 mm and 30 mm shapes. These 5 elements represent the 5 platonic solids. Our shungite 5 elements sets are carved from shungite that comes from the Zazhoginskaya mine in Karelia. It is black with a matte surface, sometimes with visible inclusions of other minerals (such as pyrite that is sometimes presented in the form of intertwined narrow veins and adds charm to the product). In geometry, a platonic solid is a regular polyhedron in three-dimensional Euclidean space. There are five such polyhedra: tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron and icosahedron. The 5 platonic solids are named after the ancient Greek philosopher Plato, who hypothesized that the classical elements (earth, water, air, fire and aether (quintessence)) were made of these regular solids.
