From the Temples of Solomon and the Great Pyramids of Egypt comes the Karnak. A Classic Egyptian style pendulum that was often used in the erecting of temples.
Today's Karnak pendulum is a copy of the sandstone original found in a sarcophagus in Karnak, located in The Valley of the Kings.
The energetic signature or form of the Karnak is based on the Ankh a powerful Egyptian symbol. This form imparts a high vibrational signature which increases its receptivity and accuracy when used with mental intent.
The Karnak is a general usage pendulum and can be employed satisfactorily in almost all dowsing scenarios such as mental sending and receiving, healing, discovery, and divining.
The Karnak is considered to be a self-cleansing pendulum. However, like all pendulums, the Karnak should be periodically blessed and washed in an appropriate cleansing solution such as sea salt and water.
As a further comment, brass will tarnish and a periodic wiping with some metal polish and a soft cloth will restore your pendulum's natural luster.
I carry several versions of the Karnak: Brass and Wood. The brass Karnak comes in two sizes, small (4.5 cm) and large (7.0 cm). The Large Karnak weighs about 40 grams and is what I would consider a heavier pendulum. The smaller Karnak is lighter in weight so consider what is appropriate to your dowsing style.
The Wooden Karnak comes in three choices: Beechwood, Ebony and Mahogany. The wooden Karnaks are of larger size and lighter making them quick while imparting a more neutral character than the brass versions. Wood is a good choice in specific situations, for example when doing chakra work when the practitioner and the client are in close proximity and there will be an overlapping of energy. I will discuss this a little more when talking about the Beechwood Conical pendulum that is mentioned by Barbara Brennen in her book, Hands of Light.
Whether you are new to dowsing or an old pro, the Karnak always performs true to form.
