Orgonite is a man-made material consisting of metal and crystal suspended in resin. Organite pieces are meant to collect and amplify orgone energy, which is similar to the concept of chi and prana in various Eastern spiritual traditions.
What is Orgone?
Orgone is a kind of universal life-force energy. The concept of orgone was developed by Wilhelm Reich, and later expanded on by his students. Reich believed you could create orgone accumulators to build up the concentration of orgone by layering organic and inorganic material, such as metal and wood.
Modern orgone accumulators are made of materials suspended in resin made from organic compounds. Copper, zinc, and stainless steel are commonly used. Copper wire is often coiled, while the other metals are included as metal shavings.
Scientific consensus is that orgone does not exist and all claims related to it are pseudoscience. However, it remains popular and is also now also believed to protect the surrounding environment from EMF radiation.
Orgone vs Orgonite
Orgonite is an orgone accumulator that brings together the normal concept of mixing metal and organic material in resin, and adds crystals to the mix. This is believed to amplify the healing properties of the crystals used.
