An obelisk is a tapering four-sided shaft of crystal or stone. Its apex looks very much like a pyramid and represents a captured solar ray or a cosmic mountain. The ancient Egyptians referred to them as Tekhenu. The pointed pillar of the obelisk symbolizes the journey of the spirit from the vibrations of the material “earthly” world to the subtle energies of the "etheric" field. In crystal healing, the obelisk can serve as a profound intention stone when used in the center of a grid. Its shape connects the earth plane to higher levels of consciousness.
