Medicinebird's Instructions for Making Orgonite



An orgone generating device consists of orgonite, which is a man-made concoction of resin,
metal shavings, and quartz crystals. The original orgone generator, developed by inventor Don Croft and dubbed the "Holy Hand Grenade (HHG)", is cone-shaped, at least 4" inches tall, with five
double-terminated crystals embedded in the resin matrix: one double crystal centered and pointing toward the tip of the cone, and four other crystals in the base of the cone, perpendicular to the bottom end of the central crystal. Cone shaped orgone devices function very well and are pleasing to look at; however, orgone generators can be poured into any shape: cylinders, wands, pyramids, etc. Easy to find molds are: plastic funnels (cut off the spout and tape the end); paper dixie cups; muffin tins, etc. (One ambitious fellow poured a giant cone-shaped device in a traffic cone!).

What you will need:

Resin. Polyester/fiberglass is cheapest (around $25/gallon) and works fine. Epoxy is more expensive, somewhat better. Tree resin is reputedly excellent but very hard to find. Avoid Bondo brand sold in auto parts stores. Sources for resin include: Lowe's, Home Depot, boat and marine supply, auto parts shops.

Metal shavings. Aluminum is easiest to find and works very well. Look for nice springy spirals. Don't use particles that are too small, like key filings. Copper brass shavings are also very good. Do not use ferrous metals, like iron or steel wool. Sources for metal shavings include sign shops, machine shops, metal salvage operations.

Quartz crystals, at least 1/2 inch long or longer. Quartz crystals can be cloudy, cracked and funky - there is no need to use expensive crystals (unless you are making a very special device). To build the original HHG, you will need five crystals at least one inch long. A good source for bulk crystals is Another internet source that caters to the orgonite crowd is

Optional ingredients. You can further boost the power of your device by adding certain minerals and gems. Favorites include: pyrite dust, rough garnets, citrine, amethyst, hematite beads, malachite, etc.

Plastic pitcher. A cheap one, 1/2 gallon size, to mix resin in.

Stirring stick.

Graduated cylinder. For measuring hardener in milliliters. You can usually find these in the drug store, sold to measure small quantities of baby medicine.

Protective rubber gloves. Keeps the resin off your hands.

Appropriate molds. Funnels, yogurt cups, wax paper cups all work fine. (Do not use plastic that is too thin, which can melt when the resin heats up). Other popular shapes are pyramids, cylinders, wands, etc. Be creative!

Mold lubricant. Any cheap vegetable oil works well, as does non-stick cooking spray (PAM).


1. Lubricate the molds. If you are using a funnel mold, set it point down in a jar or can.
2. Fill the mold 1/3 or so full of metal shavings. Set a crystal in the shavings with the point facing downwards.
3. Pour one quart of resin into the mixing pitcher. Add the appropriate amount of hardener. Use a stick to MIX WELL! A couple hundred stirs is not too much. However, do not stir so much that many air bubbles appear - air bubbles trapped in the resin mixture can compromise the power of the device. Note that once you add the hardener, the clock is ticking and the mixture will harden within anywhere from 10 minutes to 45 minutes.
4. Pour resin slowly into the mold to the top of the metal shavings. Wait a minute while the air bubbles rise to the surface.
5. Add more metal shavings. Also add any adjuncts, like pyrite, hematite, etc.
6. Pour more resin to cover. The idea is to pour in successive layers, adding shavings, minerals and more crystals. If making a Holy Hand Grenade, in the last layer, arrange four crystals like a cross, at 90 degree angles to one another, but not touching; perpendicular to the center crystal.
7. Top off with shavings and resin.

At this point, stand back. The resin will eventually get hot, and then harden. As soon as the mixture hardens, the device is functional. Leave in the mold until cool, then remove from mold.

Wipe the device with a damp cloth. You can now paint it, decorate it, coat it with polyurethane for a sealed, shiny finish, or leave it alone - it will work just as well either way.


- Uncured resin emits toxic fumes - work in a ventilated workshop area, preferably outdoors. You probably do not want to do this in your living space.

- Follow directions closely for mixing resin - be as precise as you can.

-After the mix is hardened, it may still smell for a few days - leave in the basement, outdoors, in the garage, etc. - eventually the smell will dissipate.

Place finished devices in living spaces, work spaces, in the car, under the bed, in gardens, rivers, streams, and lakes - any body of water, really - along ley lines, vortexes, or near sources of deadly orgone (DOR) - anyplace where an orgone field is desired (in other words, everywhere!), or where DOR exists. Devices can be buried shallowly or set on the ground. Simply put, place a device any place where you want to change bad vibrations into good vibrations.
