Say... if you people were to use some kind of metal for whatever crazy energy experiment you wanted to do.. Which one would you pick and why? Gold? Silver? Platinum? Steel? Something entierly different?

Re: An ideal metal for energy work?
I assume it's like most magical workings in that it should be tailored to the individual. For myself personally, I like silver over gold so if I needed to use metal in an energy working I'd tend to gravitate to that first just because of personal preference. However, it would also depend on the type of energy work I was doing and the desired end result. For a simple example, if I wanted to put energy into trying to get more money, gold would probably be my first choice over silver.

Re: An ideal metal for energy work?
Right... you got a point: Some more details here: I want a metal that wont have a problem with long lasting energy constructs bound to it and that can work well as an energy link from astral or to astral... also something that will be able to withstand a LOT of energy for long periods of time.

Re: An ideal metal for energy work?
If you want it to last long, gold is nice but dents easily as it's actually really soft. I like Pewter for these kinds of workings, as it's easy to find a pewtersmith that's willing to shape the metal into a small statuette or amulet. Pewter also isn't too heavy if the item it's that large--though some just don't like to use it. Silver is nice, not as soft as gold and I personally love white/gray/silver over yellow/gold.

However, it's all about what YOU want! Maybe you'll find a strip of metal in a shop nearby that you just feel automatically drawn to, or maybe you'll make something yourself out of tin or aluminum! : 3 It's all about what you feel comfortable working with, because I'm guessing you'll be the only one working with it. -nod-

Edit: I personally am over Psychodrama--so if you're the type of person to look up a guide on what colors work well with what metals on what days/phases of the moon, then feel free to ignore me! I work better by going on personal instinct that following someone else's BoS.

Re: An ideal metal for energy work?
I personally prefer steel and "human-modified" metals (includes bronze, brass, amalgams and galvanized/plated stuff, etc.) over "natural" metals with a low level of dilution (gold, cast iron, non-currency copper, silver, nickel, aluminium).

The way I see it, steel is more-or-less the ideal example of a metal that is easily obtainable, malleable, strong, and capable of being subjected to an array of conditions before it loses structural integrity and quality.
I consider white gold to be "human-modified" more than yellow gold, since it's rhodium-plated and not pure gold. My engagement ring is lab-created emerald in white gold; my pocket knife is steel. Those are two things that never leave contact with my person, so I regard them as holding a charge for me better than other objects, as much out of familiarity as materials.

It depends on what it is that you're doing, but I usually use silver. : )
