Harmonically tuned healing stones from ancient Kemet

Strabo, the Greek geographer noted in that the 27 BC earth quake had ruptured the northern quartz Colossus of Memnon at Thebes – yet still continued to ‘sing’ as it had done every morning since its construction by Amenhotep 3rd from the 14th century BC.

These two statues were constructed under Amenhotep 3rd in 1350 BC to flank the eastern entrance to his devotional temple at ancient Thebes on the west bank of the Nile opposite modern Luxor – standing 60 feet high.


At his Theban temple — open to his people to serve their daily devotion to him as a living god, his priestly calculations had the temple portals with these flanking Colossi face due East to capture the moment of sunrise. The Rising of sun-god Ra triggered a devotional sound in the stone, its ringing amplified through the temple which would have caused the whole foundation to vibrate and a demonstration of the Amenhotep’s ability to harness the power of the sun.


Both Greeks and Romans were drawn to its supposed oracular and believed that good fortune attended anyone hearing the tone. The Greeks fondly dubbed them, Colossi of Memnon after their hero of the Trojan war and referred to the entire Theban Necropolis as the Memnonium. It was 14thC BC Egyptian technology however, that produced the frequencies heard from the hewn quartzite sandstone quarried at Cairo and transported 420 miles upstream to Thebes to face the sun at the temple entrance due east. The ancients knew of the sun’s ability to transmute quartzite crystals so that they emit sound as the sun’s disk rose at dawn. Not only did Amenhotep create a portal for the first light of day to penetrate his temple but in its rising, the Sun triggered a sacred hum of healing sound.


The legend of the voicing Memnon’s oracular powers spread through Aegean, Mediterranean and Roman culture — the length of the then known world — bringing a stream of visitors, followers, Roman Emperors, generals and Greek historians, who came to marvel and hear the statue ‘speak’. But mysterious vocalizations of the broken colossus ceased in AD199, when Roman Emperor Septimius Severus, in an attempt to curry favour with the Oracle, reassembled the two shattered halves, using stone from a different limestone quarry to replace the broken torso. It never spoke again.

Roman engineers decided to move the colossal stones to save them from flooding which threatened the ground on which the temple stood. They moved the statues to their present site [out of alignment] which meant that they were no longer face directly into the sun which was Amenhotep’s intention. They also attempted to repair the statues and replaced the quartz with a sub-standard limestone which failed. 


It is now scientific probability that similar sonic and electrical qualities were harnessed by earlier Kings of the Old Kingdom pyramids: the Giza plateau in particular is singled out for resonance and its dramatic ability to capture solar fluctuations. It is no coincidence that those three quartzite pyramids set on their limestone plateau are built on an exact scale representation of three stars in Orion’s belt, Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka. Other pyramid complexes in the riverine Band of Peace mirror star positions: on a celestial ‘landscape’ with Orion’s belt at Giza, Heliopolis [in the south] reflects the constellation Leo [sphinx god] and Abusir in the north represents the Pleiades star cluster over Orion’s head. Scale was calculated with remarkable accuracy. This earthly triangle of energy mirroring three celestial clusters in a heavenly triangle helped keep track of Sothis/Sirius, the Dog Star in the middle and brightest star in the night sky, whose reappearance after 70 days of invisibility below the Egyptian horizon was cause for celebration — coinciding with the annual inundation of the Nile, return of fertility, plentiful water, abundant food supply.

Indigenous wisdom-keeper and Egyptian Elder Abd’El Hakim Awyan, who died in 2009, firmly believed in his ancestors’ powers to manipulate electromagnetic currents and conduit solar forces to produce technology greater than we have today.


At Saqqara, in Old Kingdom capital Memphis, the House of the Spirit at the base of the Step Pyramid of Djozer [2667-2648 BC] was a place of healing sound. Chambers in this temple were harmonically tuned to different frequencies, creating huge fields of harmonic resonance, just as later Gothic cathedrals filled sacred geometry with sound.

The Giza plateau is solid chalk and all three pyramids, ’15 million tons of quarried stone’ were constructed of limestone, two with a granite casing and pink Aswan granite interior, while the largest/earliest, the Great Pyramid, most significantly consisted of dolomite: carboniferous limestone with a high magnesium content. It also has interior galleries lined with granite. Its final outer layer was coated with limestone dust so smooth that it glistened and gleamed white in the sun. All were sited to witness sunrise at both summer and winter solstices.
