Cubic crystals are characterised by having their symmetry axes at 90 degrees and a square structure.
The cube is one of the five Platonic Solids. These are three-dimensional shapes with equal faces on all sides. They are the core building blocks of all material shapes and thus are considered the basic forms in the material realm. Each of the platnic solids represents one of the 5 elements, and the cube represents the element of Earth.
Earth is the element of stability, groundedness, fertility, materiality, potential, and stillness. Earth can also be an element of beginnings and endings, or death and rebirth, as life comes from the ground and then decomposes back into the earth after death. The Earth element help you to reconnect to the energies of Gaia and Nature, firmingly grounding you. Some even say it might activate your Kundalini, if you’re ready for it. If you’re stressed then this Platonic Solid is the one that can help you the best. The Cube can help you remove tension and physical stress.
The cube is associated with the number four. In most practices, the cube relates to stability, form, manifestation, prosperity, security and boundaries, protection, regularity, management & organisation, practicality. Cubes cultivate logic, routines and habits, punctuality and precision, and good planning.
Cubic crystals can be used in grids just as bricks are used to build buildings. The energy from their perfectly symmetrical internal lattice helps us focus our efforts on improving something that already exists in our life. They help us build upon our current progress or success. If we are looking to manifest more of something, whether it be more compassion, more patience, more physical strength or more mental acuity, we can use cubic crystals and their energy on our grids to help us achieve our goals. In addition, because of their perfect symmetry, Cubic crystals can be used to add structure and focus to our own lives encouraging order and harmony.
