WHAT IS ORGONITE?
Orgonite was created by William Reich, a psychiatrist who was doing studies on orgone energy. He discovered that energy could be changed if metal and organic materials were combined. Orgonite was the outcome of his research. A piece of orgonite consists of metal particles suspended in a resin mix with a quartz crystal in the middle. The different elements in orgonite attract and repel each other and subsequently generate a unique energy which has the ability to cleanse stagnant and negative energy.
