Hi Josh... thanks for a fascinating thread. I'm a new member who found your site a couple of days ago and became enthralled by plasterite. I've only been making orgonite since August 2009 and although I still have lots to learn, I'm passionate about it. I live in Cape Town and had intended making an orgonite CB for an event scheduled for 25 July, the Golden Pyramid of Peace. However, I'm having difficulty in finding DT crystals of the correct size. A trip to my normal supplier a few days ago proved to be unsuccessful, as did enquiries from other local suppliers. I've now decided to make a plasterite cone instead for the event! Thanks to you. So yesterday I collected plaster of paris and some oxide. Can't find copper powder yet in small quantities (I was quoted R666 - about $88 - for 1kg!!). Is it OK to use copper sulphate instead? I've decided to use my newly acquired stainless steel pyramid mould which I've only used twice - and both orgonite pieces cracked horribly! It just generates too much heat, lol. The pyramid mould is only about 100mm high, though. I'm a bit rushed for time right now (preparing for 2 holistic fairs over the next 10 days) but I'd like to find a long cone mould as soon as possible. So... once again thank you for this forum, and thanks to all members that have contributed.

I just handed these individually to my daughter after taking the photos, and her expressions and comments were priceless. Starting with smallest, her eyes got huge and she immediately said shocks in her hand. With second bowl piece, a vibration and a look of confusion. The third largest, amazement, and she gushed and blushed, said Wow. hole body got warm. Will share mix ingredients, with Josh's permission, later to any who wish... All pieces are unusually "cold" when holding, almost like putting your hand against a cool marble wall at a fancy hotel. The largest piece is the coldest, done right chilly to hold. I stacked them from smallest to largest, and there was 3 loud knocks on the wall immediately after ward, within a split second, right next to me on the bed. I jumped. Took the top piece off, felt the air pressure in room change. Put it back on, heard the 3 knocks again!!! I tried to take a picture of it, my camera batteries went dead. Replaced them, snapped the pic, camera shut off! Retried four times, same thing happened. Fifth time checked battery level, almost exhausted. New batteries out of the pack... Too funny. So no pics of stack, but I promise it was entertaining! Aho! Tony
