Basic rules to make orgonites

An orgonite is composed of resin, metal shavings and a tiny bit of quartz.

The ground rules to make a functional orgonite are quite simple:

  • A mix of about 50% resin, 50% metal shavings
  • Any metal is good
  • And add a small bit of quartz in the mix

50% resin, 50% metal mix

The ratio of 50% resin, 50% metal is easy to adhere to just by comparing the volumes of resin and metal shavings. It is the simplest thing in the world. Do it by volume, because with aluminium for example, ’1L’ of aluminium shavings in volume will generally be much lighter (in weight) than 1L of resin.

You can find more information about the types of resin on the following page: Types of resin


Any metal will do the job: steel, iron, aluminium, copper, silver, gold, brass etc. Aluminium is generally the most used because it is the cheapest and most easy to find. One thing to note is that the shape of the metal shavings can have a subtle influence on the energy of the orgonites, no matter what these subtleties are, the orgonite will be functional in any case if you respect the basic rules.

Quartz are minerals that all have the same basic composition, silicon dioxide, also named silica (SiO2). Quartz is the most abundant mineral on earth, you can find it in many places in nature, rock crystal, river quartz, beautiful double or single terminated quartz; any of these is perfect to be used in an orgonite, you don’t really need to buy quartz, it’s quite easy to find in nature.
