Runes are an ancient form of oracle used by those seeking advice. Runes have a long history, dating back to ancient use by Germanic and Nordic tribes, and are still widely used in today’s society.
The size of the crystal runes vary but they are mostly between 20-25mm at their widest points. Each set consists of 25 crystal runes and a beautifully made satin-lined velvet bag (colours vary - black, red or purple velvet). The runic symbols are engraved into the crystal and there is one left blank. The engraving is then inlaid with gold paint.
The wonderfully coloured amethyst, with its variety of shades of purple reminds us of the spiritual thread that runs through our life and can be used as a tool to aid spiritual awakening and intuition. Amethyst can bring a calming influence and therefore be of great help in times of change. It's excellent to hold or have by you when you're practicing meditation and when placed in a room it can help absorb negativity. Placed under the pillow it may help you sleep better.
Carnelian has a vibrant and spicy energy that can stimulate new life where there has been depression and lethargy. It can help to banish apathy and general disinterest in life by introducing energy into your aura, which reminds your body and spiritual self of what it is like to help something to grow. By holding or wearing carnelian you will not magically be cured but it will offer you a different road to travel. It can also help promote sociability and warmth to others and it exhibits many of the properties of agate.
Rose quartz is one of the most popular crystals along with amethyst and clear quartz. It has a calming and soothing energy. It promotes self-love and helps overcome feelings of not being 'good' enough, self-criticism and resentment. It reminds us that when you love yourself and are happy in the moment there is no need for haste. Rose quartz embraces the one true currency of life, love.
The family of jasper stones have an energy that's very grounding and stabilising. They promote the need to reduce insecurity, guilt, worry and fear and remind us of our connection with mother earth. Jasper is a great stone to have around if you're in need of healing, or if you're a healer, as it can be a useful tool for re-balancing the aura. Due to its grounding abilities, it's a good stone to hold or have close by if you're meditating, healing or involved in similar activities. It can be held in the hand whilst you visualise roots sprouting forth from your feet, securing and grounding you to the earth.
