PAGE OF SWORDS - Ornamental Ritual Athame Obsidian Knapped Blade Amethyst Witchcraft Art
New to the Spinning Castle shop! Introducing PAGE OF SWORDS, an ornamental, ritual Athame created with a knapped Stone blade, an Ocean Jasper cabochon, a Merlinite cabochon, a Brazilian Quartz Crystal, and a poplar wood handle. Below the Stone blade is a gold-leafed present moon. This is the second of two Athames that I have recently made for the Spinning Castle shop! This is meant for ceremonial and ritual purposes only. Although the hand-knapped Stone blade is sharp, this object of art is not meant to be used as a weapon.
PAGE OF SWORDS measures approximately 12.5 inches from tip to tip.
OCEAN JASPER comes in a wide variety of colors. It is very soothing and helps to love one's self as well as others. It is very healing of the emotions and brings peace of mind. It helps with acceptance of responsibility and increases patience. The circulars patterns on ocean jasper symbolize and help us realize that we are all interconnected and nature is a cyclical pattern. It can also help with circular breathing for healing or meditation. Being a type of jasper, ocean jasper is a very protective stone, and any orbs ("eyes") enhance this in regard to protection from the "evil eye." Physically, ocean jasper is said to be beneficial to the digestion, digestive organs, removing toxins, lessen body odor. Ocean Jasper is primarily related to the heart chakra.
MERLINITE is a stone of duality. This is a stone that attracts powerful magic and good luck into your life and it may also take you to places where you make contact with the deeper, darker parts of yourself. The vibration of this stone is very shamanistic as it allows you to access the energy of the natural world and communicate with elementals. It is said to conjure the memories of alchemists and wizards such as the wizard Merlin from Arthurian times. It is a stone that stimulates deep intuition, psychic knowing and spiritual mediumship. It a stone of harmony that aids the birth of creativity and clear psychic visions, and it will aid you to access higher spiritual energy and to make contact with guides and teachers in the higher realms. But it is not only a stone for the light as it may allow you to experience 'dark night of the soul' aspects of your higher-self. This stone currently comes from only one mine in New Mexico. It is a variety of Dendritic Opal and sometimes has an opalescent sheen. It may contain a blend of white quartz, black dendritic inclusions and black Psilomelane depending on the individual stone. Merlinite is black and white, although its black color ranges from dark grey to bluish-black.
QUARTZ CRYSTAL is known as the "master healer" and will amplify energy and thought, as well as the effect of other crystals. It absorbs, stores, releases and regulates energy. Clear Quartz enhances psychic abilities. It aids concentration and unlocks memory. Stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance. Clear Quartz (Crystal Quartz, Rock Crystal) harmonizes all the chakras and aligns the subtle bodies.
