My tools of the trade

Postby vassal » Tue May 09, 2017 6:55 pm

Crystals really are one of my favorite ways of directing energy. I've only a few in my arsenal but here they are below:

Image

This is my Charoite sphere. She's helped me with a lot. I hardly go a day without carrying or meditating on this wonderful stone. She is awesome for yoga & qigong. Sometimes I refer to her as my 'wish-fulfilling gem'. :fairy: 3" diameter

Image

This is my talisman/athame/swiss-army-what-have-you of Black Kyanite & Copper. Either worn hidden on the left or right around my neck at heart-center. Hardly a day goes by without this. 3" length.

Image
This is my prayer/mantra necklace of Silver & stainless steel (see iron.) I love the clasp, it's a snake biting it's own tail. I wear it when I go out in public as its a wonderful ward. It also makes me feel just a little on the closed-off side. So I consider my options.

Image
This is an amulet of silver & Lapis Lazuli I hodge-podged together. I love that the silver acts as a reflection of the Lapis Lazuli & what's left of the coral.

:shock: Ooo. lovely charoite, or chariot as the spell check insists :) . Thanks for sharing the photos. It is always a treat.

I have a lump of found red Jasper I cleave to for comfort, and a polished labradorite palm stone... :shock: ... Oops, lost in crystal thrall. You'll understand.

Thank you very much, I am too typically enthralled by my Charoite. I actually keep it inside a leather pouch so I don't stare. It's that mesmerizing in person. But because I try to remind myself to stay connected to the divine, I always carry/strap her in my left hand. She's changed me. People who are even mildly sensitive realize how serene & calm the atmosphere around me is. Partially glamour, invocation & this beautiful spirit of a stone. I adore people's tools & arts so it was pure pleasure to share because I'm very happy with the few things I have in my arsenal. (Hoping to finish an altar soon !!! EEEEEK)

Ooof Red Jasper. I would cleave to it for comfort too! It's so stabilizing & warm! And Labradorite, I've been fascinated by that one since I was a little kid. I believe it may even have been one of the first five stones I bought from a crystal shop after saving up my allowance. It was always so magical to me. It reminded me of Dragons for some reason; to wit I was also obsessed.

The first time I saw lab. I had just entered a shop and literally saw a flash of light from behind the counter, 30 feet away. So of course I made a beeline over & asked what they had stashed. I was handed a basket of stones and took 1st pick of the litter. Treasure!

My first brush with charoite was when I was pawing through a basket of sugilite, and up popped an irredescent purple-feathered stone, obviously in the wrong bag from the original supplier as there was none of it in the shop, & obviously it was what I was poking around for. The shop clerk didn't know what it was, but I bought it anyhow and found out later. Oh yea, it's a ni-ice stone. Gee, I love rocks.

Thank you :) I'm not a photographer but I've always a knack for aesthetics or presentation!

My most important crystal is the Herkimer Diamond because they have the attribute to entangle with other Herkimer Diamonds where ever they might be. I have one on my wand and one on my staff and sent one to my grand daughter in Denver to potentiate a psychic link with her.

I've sometimes found myself browsing for Herkimer online. I need to go to a good shop nearby and see if they have any to touch. :)

Many Witchy shops sell Herkimer Diamonds nestled together and with a sprig of White Sage as a pair to potentiate entanglement.

Very excited as I also received some free blessings in the form of amethyst, tangerine quartz & sunstone. I just adore my new Rose Quartz Turtle!

Pausanias: In the temple is the image of the goddess whom they call Ourania; it is made of ivory and gold and is the work of Pheidias; it stands with one foot upon a tortoise (the tortoise was a symbol of domestic modesty and chastity).
