Chintamani Stone

from JamesAxler Website


It appears to be a trapezohedron made of black stone or ore, with glowing striations. However it is more, or less, than stone. Scientists would not be able to study it completely because it exists only partially in humanities concept of matter and space.

It is more than an artifact, it is a key to doors that were sealed aeons ago.

Part of the stone was kept in a monastery in Tibet, the second in the Museum of Natural history in Manhattan, and the final piece in the city of Agartha.

One ancient South American Legend relates that the god Tvira built a temple on an island in the lake Titicaca to hold three holy stones called the Kala.

Similarly three black stones were venerated by the Muslims in the Ka'aba at the great mosque in Mecca. There are several traditions associated with the stones but all agree on its celestial origin. Muslims say that the stones were originally white but turned black after absorbing dark or evil thoughts.

In Hungary, near the village of Stregoicavar, there was a monolith that 19th century occultists spoke as one of the keys. There was a lot of superstition regarding the stone and the monolith, especially the assertion that if anyone slept in its vicinity that they would be haunted by monstrous nightmares of another world afterwards forever.

In many texts the stone is referred to as the Shining Trapezohedron.





Shining Trapezohedron

The Shining Trapezohedron is an artifact in the fictional Cthulhu mythos of H.P. Lovecraft, described in The Haunter of the Dark. It was discovered in Egyptian ruins, in a box of alien construction, by Professor Enoch Bowen before he returned to Providence, Rhode Island in 1844.


Members of the Starry Wisdom Cult in Providence would awaken the the Haunter of the Dark, an aspect of Nyarlathotep, by gazing into the glowing crystal. Summoned from the black gulfs of chaos, this being could show other worlds, other galaxies, and the secrets of arcane and paradoxical knowledge; but he demanded monstrous sacrifices, hinted at by disfigured skeletons that were later found in the church. The Haunter of the Dark was banished by light, and could not cross a lighted area.

The Shining Trapezohedron is a window on all space and time. It was created on dark Yuggoth and brought to Earth by the Old Ones, where it was placed in its box aeons before the first human beings. It has further history in Atlantis and with the Pharoahs of Egypt, until finally it was unearthed and brought to New England.

After the death of Robert Blake, who came to grief after discovering the Shining Trapezohedron and deciphering texts about it from ancient evil cults, the artifact was removed from the black windowless temple where it was found, and thrown into the deepest channel of Narragansett Bay. Presumably it will stay in the depths until it is once again discovered and brought forth to curse mankind.

The "crazily angled stone" that is the Shining Trapezohedron is unlikely to be a true trapezohedron because of the Old Ones' penchant for bizarre non-Euclidean angles.




A number of esoteric and suppressed volumes dating back to the Gnostic tradition mentioned the original form of the stone as a Trapezohedron. An Arab scholar who went by the name of Abdul al-Hazred wrote of it in his 18th century manuscript, Kitab al-Azif. Von Junzt alluded to it in his Unausprechlichen Kulten, as did the Ponape scripture and Pinn's De Vermiis Mysteriis.

The most recent mention of the stone is from the 1920's and directly reference the reason why the stones were called keys.

In Buddhist and Taoist, there is the Tradition of Eight Immortals, eight masters who reside beneath a mountain on the Chinese-Tibet border. The City, known as Agartha in some legends and Hsi Wang Mu in others, is possibly underground and has been said by many as to be near Lhasa. There have been numerous and dubious reports of explorations of tunnels leading to the city, but the most convincing came from Nicholas Roerich, a Russian artist and Mystic.

During his travels in Asia in the first decade of the twentieth century he heard about Eight Immortals and their abode in the mountains. He learned from a native guide about a huge vault inside the Kun Lun mountain range where treasures had been stored from the beginning of history and of strange gray people.

In the 1920's a high abbot from the Trasilumpo lamasery entrusted Roerich with a fragment of a magical stone from another world, The Chintamani Stone, alleged to have come from the Sirius system. Ancient Asian texts claim that 'when the son of the sun descended upon the Earth to teach mankind, there fell from the heaven a shield which bore the power of the world.

Roerich's wife wrote that the stone possessed a dark luster, like a dark heart, with four unknown letters... Roerich recognized the four letters on the stone to be Sanskrit and translated them to mean,

"Through the Stars I come. I bring the chalice covered with the shield. Within it I bring a treasure, the gift of Orion."

Its radiation was stronger than Radium but on a different frequency.

Asian legends state that this radiation covers a vast area and influence world events. The main mass of the stone is kept in a tower in the city of the Starborn.

According to ancient texts the stone was sent from Tibet to King Solomon in Jerusalem, who split the stone and made a ring out of one piece. Centuries later Muhammad took three other fragments to Mecca. A smaller fragment was sent with Roerich to Europe to help aid the establishment of the league of nations. With the failure of the League, Roerich returned the fragment to the Trasilumpo lamasery in Tibet.

Supposedly the thirteenth Dalai Lama decreed that the fragments were to be kept in separate places for safe keeping.

During Roerich's journey to Tibet he reported he saw a flying disk, a term he used two decades before the phrase was coined. His guide told him it was from the city of Agartha.

Roerich speculated that the stone was a form of Moldavite, a magnetic mineral said to be a spiritual accelerator. Some historians said that the stone can act as a homing beacon, leading to the man piece and the city of the Eight Immortals.

The Abbot told Roerich how the immortals were made of air and clay, formed by Mu Kung, the sovereign of eastern air and Wang Mu, the queen of the western air. A post Taoist twist is that they are from a planet in the solar system of Sirius and established an outpost in the Tibet Mountains to conduct their genetic hybrid experiments.

Roerich's theory about the stone is that it is charged with Shugs, currents of psychic force. He speculated it resembled an electrical accumulator and may give back, in one way or another, the energy stored within it. For instance, it will increase the spiritual vitality of anyone who touches it, infusing him with knowledge, or enhancing psychic abilities, that allow him to glimpse Agartha, the valley of the Eight Immortals.

The stone, according to Balam, is a key, a key to all futures and everyone's destiny. It is a point of power, a nontechnological quantum vortex.
