What is an altar?

An altar is very personal, and depending on your belief system, it can be structured an infinite number of ways. Essentially, it is a consecrated space used for setting intentions, aiding meditation, rituals and spell casting, etc. Many altars are kept year round on a table, shelf, or dresser-top in the home. They can also be taken on the go, erected in a forest, or set up seasonally. Common elements of an altar include: representation of gods and/or goddesses, candles, incense, symbols of the elements, a book of shadows or journal, stones and crystals, and divination tools like rune stones or tarot cards.

What is orgonite?

Discovered by Wilhelm Reich in 1939, orgone energy is a term for life energy that runs through all of existence, much like prana or chi. The orgone or orgonite pieces sold by Stargazer Altar Supply are created with the intent to harmonize this life energy. These devices are also commonly used for EMF protection and decreasing personal sensitivity to electric and magnetic frequencies. Orgonite is a combination of epoxy resin, metal, and crystals. The tension created by metals of opposite charge enhance the benefits of the crystal(s) in the piece.
