Orgonite is made from three basic materials.
Metal shavings (a conductive material) bound in and separated by Resin (a non-conductive material).
These materials are best combined in equal parts (by volume).
Natural crystalline stone interacts with these materials to produce the electrostriction effect that greatly enhances the transmutation poterntial of the compound.
We will first be taking a look at the Metal Shavings.
Metal of many kinds can be used in orgonite: Steel, copper, aluminium, brass etc will all have a similar effect when combined with resin and crystal in the correct proportions.
Aluminium is often favoured because it is generally clean and weighs less than other metals which makes it ideal for orgonite vendors who regularly send their products through the postal system.
More important is the size of the individual pieces of metal.
If they are too big; then there will be too much space between them for resin and the 50/50 proportion of resin to metal will not be achieved.
Conversely; if the shavings are too small; too little resin will separate them resulting in too much metal compared to resin.
Another problem with metal dust is that it will not allow the resin through the shavings when poured from above.
I use machine-shop waste as it is plentiful and usually free.
Pure aluminium has a set scrap value but mixed metal waste is simply thrown away.
I first pick out the long strands and pieces that are too large to use easily in small moulds; the remainder I place in a sieve which allows the fine shavings and dust to fall through.
What remains in the sieve is TB-grade shavings.
The waste from the first sieve is passed through a finer sieve to remove the dust and what remains can be used for mini-TBs for cell phones and laptop computers.
The very coarse shavings and dust are discarded.
I find that a random mixture of mixed metal shavings makes better orgonite than shavings of a uniform size and type.
