About

Olympus 9 In Studio Greytak’s Olympus 9, a multi-layered piece of the extra-magical serpentine, floats between bands of polished copper, the metal of change. A beautiful base of zebrawood grounds these energetic powerhouses with the wisdom of the moon. Serpentine is called the stone of regeneration for its remarkable ability to take past pains and turn them into future power. Ancient healers used serpentine as an antidote for snakebites and considered this medicine of the snake magical. It’s mottled greenish-yellow color even resembles snakeskin, linking it even closer to the transformative energy of the animal. The symbol of two intertwining serpents, first used by the father of alchemy, Hermes, has come to represent the healing arts in many cultures. Serpentine creates a powerful energetic shield of protection around the body, giving one the power to shed past restraints and expectations in order to move into one’s own power. It is a protective talisman against psychic attacks and provides the body with a strong energy-detox. More than anything, serpentine is about freeing yourself from the shackles of expectation and finding your bliss. Copper is most likely the first metal used by humans. One of the few metals that occur in nature without needing extraction from an ore, it was used as a substitute for stone as early as 8000 BC. Copper is a soft, malleable metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity. For healers, it is the metal of the magician and can carry the energies of stones as easily as it carries electricity. Spiritually, copper is considered a conduit between Heaven and Earth. It is the metal of channeling energies and transforms the invisible to the visible. Copper encourages experimentation and invention and brings the energy of revolutionary ideas and unexpected serendipitous change. In the swamps and along the riverbanks of western Africa grows a large tree with dense bark up to one foot thick. Zebrawood, found mostly in Cameroon, Gabon, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, is logged by hand and most often quartersawn to get the exciting alternating color pattern that gives the wood its name. It is the growth zones between winter wood and spring wood that create the dark, zebra-like stripes in the light-brown or cream-colored wood. Used in furniture, archery bows, decorative veneer, and the dashboards of luxury cars, it is a heavy, hard wood with an interlocked grain that makes for difficult work. But its beauty makes the effort worthwhile. Energetically, zebrawood is the only purely feminine wood and is associated with the moon, creativity, wisdom, love, and luck. It is not used for healing purposes but is strongly recommended for divination. Place this piece in a position of significance where it will remind you to shed the weight of the past and step into your light. Materials Serpentine Polished copper Zebrawood.
