The stone of the gods
Rose granite was revered by the Egyptians.
Granite comes from the Latin granum, or “grain” in reference to the coarse structure of this crystalline rock. Granite consists of quartz, feldspar, mica and amphibole that form an interlocking matrix. Granite is hard enough to resist abrasion, strong enough to withstand pressure, inert enough to endure weathering yet soft enough to polish smoothly.
But none of this tells us WHY the Egyptians coveted rose granite and shipped it nearly a thousand kilometres down the Nile—from the Aswan quarries to the Giza pyramids. Indeed, it appeared everywhere in this ancient culture from vases to statues, temples to tombs and obelisks to capstones.
Rose granite is sacred because of the way it makes us feel. This requires some sensitivity, but the truth is that it resonates with unconditional love and infinite peace. This is why the Nile was a sacred river—it flowed over rose granite in the south. In fact, Aswan granite had high paramagnetic resonance and was believed to harness the power of the Sun.
Rose granite then, was the fabled Philosopher’s Stone. By entering a temple made with this rock, we could resonate naturally with the divine frequency of heavenly bliss. This is why the King’s Chamber was made of rose granite instead of more convenient stones. Today, you can feel this power by visiting crystal coasts like Freycinet National Park:

We’re all familiar with cell towers. Obelisks were similar in that they transmitted pure love to the temples behind them. Those inside these retreats could feel their resonance and therefore these gigantic tuning forks were exclusively made from Aswan rose granite. Egypt then, was a playful culture that danced to the pulse of this sacred stone.
Charged by Horus, obelisks were artificial resonators that spread infinite peace beyond the Earth’s natural crystal mountains like Yosemite, Enchanted Rock and Corcovado. Discharged by Set, the lunar cycle acted like a circuit breaker to the power of the Sun. New moons in particular brought cooler, calmer energy.
So how are our hearts purified? Well, electromagnetic (EM) waves are formed when an electric field comes in contact with a magnetic field. The electric field and magnetic field are perpendicular to one other. They are also at right angles to the travelling direction of the EM wave. Rose granite then, is sympathetic to these EM waves due to its crystalline matrix of quartz and feldspar.
This signature is reflected in plasma waves. Plasma is one of the four fundamental states of matter. These ripples couple to those of sound and light and are found in the body as bioplasmas. Bioplasma is a diffuse magnetic fluid which surrounds all living beings. Like a liquid, it can be of varying viscosities and densities. The human biofield is like a plasma bubble which surrounds the body at a distance of two metres at the sides and one metre above and below.
A wave’s length is its spacial period: the distance over which its shape repeats. It is measured by finding the corresponding points of the same phase (such as crests or troughs). Wavelength is designated by the Greek letter lambda (λ). The figure below shows three standing waves within a room. The distance between the walls of the chamber determine which wavelengths are possible although in this case we are interested in the green one in the middle:
An overtone is any frequency that is greater than the fundamental frequency of a note. Using the model of Fourier analysis, these overtones are called partials. The study of harmonics, or more precisely harmonic partials, are waves whose frequencies are integer multiples of the fundamental. So in our solar system, the Sun provides the base electrical frequency that our temples can resonate in sympathy with.
We must remember however that A on the 440 Hz western musical scale is different from the frequency the ancients used: unearthed Egyptian instruments were instead tuned to 432 Hz. The Greeks followed on from this. Guiseppe Verdi, an Italian composer, also found A4 at 432 Hz. This is important when we try to discover the other tones at which the “King’s Chamber” sings.

In actual fact, it resonates with Earth’s infrasonic frequency—F#4 fits 11 times in this space using the 432 Hz scale. There is also another serpent in this room (E5) that connects us with the stars: 20 wavelengths of the royal cubit fit perfectly in this 1,049 cm room. So the King’s Chamber is really a crystal oscillator capable of tuning our biological Möbius strip—the vagus nerve:

The pyramid therefore, can be viewed as a resonator used to combine EM and plasma waves in a Möbius pattern. Indeed, the pyramid creates an 11:20 ratio (55%) standing wave within the King’s Chamber that is a mixture of these harmonic partials. Curiously, the percentage of quartz in the granite walls is also 55% and forms the pattern of the geometry around the human heart:
Crystals are fossilised water, formed when water combines with an element under pressure, temperature and energy fluctuations. As a crystal, the element is able to express itself as a more unified and ordered being. Silica sand, when combined with water, becomes quartz crystal. Quartz crystals have many physical properties—they can amplify, transform and transfer energy. We see the results in microphones, radios and timepieces.
Our bodies, too, are crystalline in structure. When working with crystals, there may be profound effects on the organs, tissues and cells but also in the circulatory, endocrine and metabolic systems. When love energy interacts with a crystal, those emotions are changed to more harmonic forms, which change brainwave frequencies, showing possible alterations in consciousness. Thus, the power of positive intention combined with the use of crystals often provides remarkable results.

So rose granite produces “coherence”. The cells of the human body have a natural geometrical relationship to the structure of this stone. Therefore when the Sun and Moon charge it, the granite inspires pure love in our hearts. When the pyramid’s interior is charged it creates a standing wave within the chamber allowing for energy transference.
Why does this work? Because the “life force” is contained in water. The quartz in granite is formed from silica-rich water. The percentage of quartz in granite is similar to the ratio of water in the body. We call rose granite living rock because the minerals that make it up are really a form of “crystallised biology”. We are reminded of this geometry in the hexagon and the hexagram of the heart chakra.
So when the frequencies of the Sun and Moon are balanced, the angelic love of the high heart can be amplified by rose granite. This is felt as the unconditional love of infinite peace. The pyramids then, really just need their granite capstones returned to become operational again. In this sense, they were both lenses AND amplifiers—their harmonic resonance could be felt for miles around. The result was a more peaceful society.
One of the celebrated European alchemists, Philippus Aureolus Paracelsus, called aether “the substance of stars and souls.” Together, humans and granite are the biological crystallisation of this life force—the infinite peace of the High Heart.
