Lapis Lazuli Rune Set
This set of Nordic runestones contains 25 individual stones fashioned into genuine gemstone settings, perfect to aid your daily divination practice, or decorate your home. The name rune itself means "secret" or "something hidden" - thus runes are considered esoteric symbols of ancient knowledge.
Runecasting, or the act of divining with runes, is a practice wherein the reader picks out a single, or sequence of runes, and reads them in a given layout - such as past, present, and future. Alternatively, the runes can be cast out of the bag all at once, and the upward-facing runes respond to a particular question or problem.
Lapis is a mixture of at least three minerals: lazurite, calcite & pyrite. Ground lapis was the secret of the blue in ultramarine, the pigment which painters used to paint the sea and the sky until the nineteenth century. It was said to impart ancient knowledge, and the wisdom to use it and to enhance one's awareness, insight and intellect.
Each rune set comes with:
- 25 gemstone runes (including 24 inscribed runes and 1 "blank" rune)
- Velvet drawstring bag for storage and carrying
- Rune meaning sheet
Please note that due to natural variations in gemstone deposits, the rune set you receive may not be identical to the one pictured. Individual rune stone sizes vary from 0.5" - 1" in diameter.
