Check out this Bloodstone Obelisk from La Luna....the Spiritual Warrior crystal!
An Obelisk is a shape that is a symbol of the ancient world - with their origins coming from Egypt. Also found in Mexican, Central and South American cultures...
An obelisk is a tall, four-sided, narrow tapering monument which ends in a pyramid-like shape or pyramidion at the top. Originally they were called tekhenu by their builders, the Ancient Egyptians. Commonly erected to commemorate an individual, an event and/or to honour the gods, usually placed at the entrances of their temples.
Many who have studied these consider obelisks to be designed to release the built up energies beneath the crust of the earth. The shape maintains the balance of earth energy by taking the stored energies and releasing them into the atmosphere to be circulated around the globe.
Crystals shaped into Obelisks can amplify the specific crystal energies and focus them out through the apex, the top of the point. Commonly used to help keep a balance between the emotional + physical energies within the body.
They can also be used to help get rid of negative energies from places where they could arise, such as the workdesk, perhaps at home when large family gatherings are happening or even a home office or workspace if you have one.
