The Pyramid or The Anubis Shrine appeared in the background of many episodes before being featured in the web series Grand Designs. It's located near the Ancient Archives.
The Anubis Shrine provided seismic force to power the original Warehouse 13 by harnessing the vibrations of green moldavite crystals. In order to function properly, the crystals must be carefully balanced; if not, it will cause massive earthquakes.
If unbalanced, the crystals will change colors to red until all are balanced.
A dog is needed for entering the shrine, as a bark makes the statues of Anubis retract their spears and the door to open.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Moldavite is a typically green vitreous silica projectile rock formed by a meteorite impact in southern Germany. It is a form of tektite, which itself is a natural glass formed from meteoric impacts.
- Libyan desert glass is a green natural glass theorized to originate from meteor impacts found in the eastern Sahara and the deserts of eastern Libya and western Egypt.
- It was knapped and used to make tools during the Pleistocene (Ice Age), and was used in some Egyptian jewelry (an example being the pectoral of Tutankhamen, which features a scarab carved from Libyan desert glass).
