Above all else, stones for sacred sites were chosen for their high content of quartz, a material that not only can be programmed but also makes a great transmitter. The type of quartz found in the bluestones of Stonehenge, for example, was used in early radio sets.
But the one stone that was particularly revered above all others in the ancient world was red granite. This very powerful rock is composed of high amounts of quartz and iron. Its power, in a sense, lies in the way it mirrors the human body, because the body contains quartz (silica) in its bones and iron dissolved in its blood. To work with red granite is to work with the human body.
Since the primary purpose of temples was for the alteration and transmutation of the human energy field– and hence its heightened connection with the spirit world– the choice of stone was carefully considered. In ancient times people were trained in the art of energy manipulation, and to be a Stone Mason was to hold a very important position in the hierarchy of human affairs. These ‘knights’ of the temple would eventually morph into an esoteric organization that sought to preserve the ancient mysteries’ secrets: the Freemasons.
Extremely interesting how widespread this idea of energy from stones actually is. Have people reached the idea independently? I suspect they probably have.
Very interesting stuff.
