More Rune Information

The Elder Futhark is the oldest form of runic alphabet. It was developed and used by the Germanic people of Scandinavia during the Migratory period in the 2nd to 10th centuries, with the full 24-symbol alphabet in use by the 5th century. It has been found inscribed on jewelry, dishes, tools, and weapons in addition to runestones.
In Norse mythology, it was Odin himself who brought the runes to mankind, in a dramatic story in which Odin sacrificed himself to himself on Yggdrasil, the tree of life, in order to give runes their power.
The word rune simply means, "mystery," and the Elder Futhark became just that as the alphabet was simplified and changed, leading to its knowledge becoming lost until 1865 when a Norwegian scholar was able to decipher it.
In addition to being an alphabet, the Elder Futhark was an important magical tool, with each rune representing some combination of 3 different things- 1. A god or concept from Norse mythology, 2. An object or concept from Nature, and 3. An object or concept from daily life. The runes were used to tell fortunes, cast spells, and provide protection.

In modern days, Rune stones have become a popular method of divination, and those that seek to understand them can find information in books as well as the internet.

Crystal Information

Amethyst is a variety of quartz, generally ranging from pale lilac to deep, reddish purple. As with other varieties of quartz, amethyst owes its color to irradiation from surrounding rocks as well as impurities of iron and other trace minerals.

We could fill a book with the positive properties that are attributed to amethyst, but at its root, amethyst is a stone of peace, calm, and unification. Although many stones really shouldn't be kept in the bedroom or other places of rest and relaxation, amethyst is a perfect addition to the bedside table, meditation space, study area, or anywhere that peace of mind, calm of heart, and unity of spirit are needed- that is to say, pretty much anywhere! Together, these attributes bring clarity, positivity, and when needed, rest.

Photography
Although we always strive to provide clear, accurate images of our crystals and other products, we photograph under professional lighting, which is meant to mimic sunlight. If you get your piece and think it looks a little different under low or artificial light, try checking it out again in sunlight!

Our crystals are one-of-a-kind art, created by nature.
No two pieces are the same, and there is no such thing as "perfection" in nature.

When it comes to our hand-carved items, remember that artists work with and around imperfections, druzy pockets, and other natural variations to bring each carving out of a piece of natural stone.

We consider these imperfections to be one of the most wonderful parts of crystal collecting, and we invite you to embrace each carving's uniqueness!

We will always try to portray each piece honestly, so be sure to look closely at our images and videos to ensure you know what to expect.
