Where to find the materials


This page is different depending on the language chosen; in English addresses/information is related to the United Kingdom (and Ireland), in German it’s related to Germany, in French to France and in Italian to Italy.

Resin suppliers (and related products)

There are surely many other suppliers to be found, either by going through search engines and searching for keywords like fiberglass, polyester resin, epoxy, etc. or the same on ebay, amazon, aliexpress and similar websites or in the yellow pages. But with the above list you have already plenty of options available, many of these suppliers also supply colours, protection equipment, cleaning equipment, moulding equipment etc.

Quartz/Stones

Giving you a specific address or website is not possible because they change so often. Just search for ‘quartz beads’ of ‘quartz tumblestones’, just add rose for rose quartz, etc. on search engines and websites like amazon, ebay, aliexpress, etc. You will easily find plenty of sellers, either on large websites like ebay or smaller individual sellers. One of my favourite choice in the UK was 32-38″ strings, the quarts were of very small sizes, less than half an inch and it’s perfect to use in all purpose towerbusters, no need to use large/long single or double terminated quartz. But for pyramids and other personal devices this is obviously good and you can also find pointed quartz and plenty of other gems by searching here and there. Sellers from Hong Kong or China are quite reliable and usually offer almost free shipping.

There are quite good sellers in germany, for that you’ll often have to search in German, standard quartz tumbled stones can be found with ‘bergkristall trommelsteine’ or just look for ‘trommelsteine’ which means: tumbled stones. Another good place to look for quartz is in DIY shops, the rocks/pebbles sold in large quantities can often be quartz. Aquarium stones are often quartz, they can also be found in many DIY shops and obviously specialised aquarium shops.

You can also easily find quartz in nature! I’m adding some photos to show you what to look for. White marble looks a lot like white quartz, but it’s easy to test the difference by smashing the stone, marble breaks much more easily than quartz. White marble might not be as great as quartz, but it also partly works for orgonites, marble is piezoelectric like quartz…

Metal/Metal shavings

You can find buy some types of metal shavings on this website if you want to keep it simple, because it is usually the resource that is the hardest to find when one starts to get into making orgonites.
Orgonite making supplies

Finding metal shavings in small quantities is not the easiest of tasks, because the sale is small quantities is not very widespread, usually these things are traded in large quantities. Metal scraps are recycled, collected, exchanged, but usually in large quantities. But that’s also good, because if you manage to find a place close to you where they produce shavings and random scraps if you don’t need unusually large quantities, you’ll usually get them for free. The only thing to do is find a workshop or small factory and ask them.

To find such a place, the best place to start is in the yellow pages (http://www.yell.com/ for the UK) and look for ‘lathe milling’ or ‘window factory’ or ‘aluminium fabrication’ or similar research terms. Just note down all the phone numbers and start calling! The best places for scrap shavings are places where they make window frames from aluminium/plastic/pvc or aluminium industrial doors or aluminium fences and the likes. They will have nicely sized shavings and non-oily. Because often the shavings from milling factories can be greasy, which is not great to handle; they work but the oil reacts with the resin and can make it whitish. In the end, as they usually ask for what this unsual request of shavings is, I usually end up trading shavings for orgonites. :)

There are sellers of shavings of different metals in small quantities in a couple of countries. You can easily look for them on the internet by looking for, aluminum shavings/scraps, brass shavings, copper shavings, steel shavings etc. germany has quite a lot of those sellers, in german it’s ‘Aluminiumspäne’ for aluminum shavings, ‘Messingspäne’ for brass, ‘Kupferspäne’ for copper, ‘Eisenspäne’ for steel, etc.

Moulds

As with resins, or minerals, there are so many vendors that listing them all would be impossible.
If there is one thing that is easy to find, it’s the molds, they are cooking supplies.
You just have to search for ‘silicone mould’ or ‘stainless steel mould’ on the Internet you will find millions of results on thousands of different websites.
Aliexpress is a gold mine for these moulds, there are millions of sellers …

Silicone moulds are very practical because they can bend, demoulding is extremely easy. The steel/stainless steel moulds are also generally very good, but if, for example, there is an overflow of a lot of resin, it can make demoulding more complicated because some of these overflows will need to be broken. With silicone moulds an overflow is not very disturbing since the mould is deformable.
You can also search in glass objects and other types of plastics. What you should know is that some plastics do not withstand the temperatures of 50-80°C that the resin can reach during catalysis and will melt and/or stick, other plastics do not even support the liquid resin and will simply melt just with a prolonged contact with the resin. Glass can withstand the heat and liquid resin very well, on the other hand, it can not withstand resin overflows that cling to the edges and pull the glass when the resin shrinks, this will create a tension which most often breaks the glass.
In the rigid forms of stainless steel and glass, release agents, motor oil, wax, petroleum jelly, are useful for the orgonite not to adhere to the walls of the mould, in silicone moulds it is absolutely not necessary. For these rigid molds it is also highly recommended to use only slightly conic forms, or at most straight, if the opening of the mould is less wide than the bottom you will never be able to pull out the hardened orgonite.

For pyramid moulds with square base, as the question came up a couple of times, you can find some on amazon, look for ‘steel pyramid mould’. There are others made by sellers on etsy.com.
