Graphite Downward Pointing Triangle

A window to the soul like an axis to the 4 corners (f1) of the earth (f2). Dig deep (f3)

“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake...”  -Francis Bacon, Sr.

Signifying themes of belonging, self-esteem, creativity and insight, the Graphite Downward Pointing Triangle is an important image in the symbology of the Root, Solar Plexus, Throat and Third Eye Chakra. Made of graphite, a polymorph of carbon that crystallizes in a hexagonal system, the Graphite Downward Pointing Triangle, in the same core fashion as snowflakes and honeycombs, is a key player in the architecture of the cosmos.
