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. It has to be estimated by volume, because with aluminium for example, 1L of aluminium shavings in volume (around 100-200g) will generally be much lighter (in weight) than 1L of resin (around 1.2 kg). On the other hand, 1L of steel shavings will weigh 3-4 times more than 1L of resin. This is why it is often indicated roughly 50/50 in terms of volume, because depending on the metals, the ratio from a weight point of view will be very different.
Simply said: just take two glasses/cups etc. of the same size, one filled with metals, the other filled with resin and mix the two in another larger container and add some quartz. It’s that simple.

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.
