Philosopher's Stone

$85.00

The meaning behind this one is multi-layered. The concept to have a spin coin with the quote from Lao Tzu's was Lisa's but when trying to come up with the art I stumbled across the symbol for the Philosopher's Stone.

This will be the first in a series. The center of the Philosopher's Stone symbol represents the different philosophers quoted on the spin side.

"The philosopher’s stone is a mythical elixir sought after in alchemy, an ancient practice of transforming metals into powerful medicinal substances. The elusive philosopher’s stone is said to turn base metals into gold and to grant its bearer immortality, which is why humans have sought to alchemize it for centuries.

In symbolic form, the philosopher’s stone that is composed of a circle, square and a triangle, has profound spiritual meaning. The symbol represents not only the immortality associated with the mythical stone, but also the totality and divine potential of human consciousness.

The symbol’s large and small circles depict the universal god and the god within you, respectively. This serves as a reminder to find the divine within yourself, align with your divine purpose in the universe, and become the highest form of yourself that you can be.

What’s more, the philosopher’s stone symbol urges you to become conscious of and to unify your spiritual & physical nature. The smaller circle depicts the spiritual realm (mind and soul), the square depicts the material realm (the body), and the triangle represents the union of the spiritual and material: the union of body, mind, and soul."
