QUEEN OF SWORDS - Ornamental Ritual Athame Obsidian Knapped Blade Amethyst Witchcraft Art
New to the Spinning Castle shop! Introducing QUEEN OF SWORDS, an ornamental, ritual Athame created with a knapped Black Obsidian blade, a Black Druzy cabochon, two polished Amethyst cabochons, two Amethyst Quartz clusters, and a poplar wood handle. Below the Obsidian blade is a gold-leafed present moon. This is the first 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 Black Obsidian blade is sharp, this object of art is not meant to be used as a weapon.
QUEEN OF SWORDS measures approximately 13 inches from tip to tip.
OBSIDIAN is the result of volcanic lava coming in contact with water. Often the lava pours into a lake or ocean and is cooled quickly. This process produces a glassy texture in the resulting rock. Iron and magnesium give the obsidian a dark green, brown or black colour. Obsidian has been used by ancient people as a cutting tool, for weapons, and for ceremonial purposes and is sometimes found by archaeologists in excavations. Obsidian is a strongly protective stone, forming a shield against emotional negativity. It grounds you to the earth through the base chakra and strengthens you in times of need. It is helpful to highly sensitive people. It blocks psychic attack and removes negative spiritual influences. Black Obsidian helps you uncover unconscious thoughts and patterns that inhibit your spiritual growth. Thes patterns can contribute to addiction, abusive behaviour, negativity, scarcity and other undesirable traits. This stone will point out where you are holding these patterns and assists in clearing them from the auri field and cellular memory.
Black Obsidian is perfect for grounding and keeping you focused. If you have a tendency to be easily distracted or off centre, use this stone to keep your mind on the task at hand. It is also beneficial for maintaining a positive outlook by keeping negative thoughts at bay.
AMETHYST in the psychic and spiritual realms, is an excellent all-purpose stone that can increase spirituality, enhance intuition and psychic powers of all kinds. It does this by making a clear connection between the earth plane and other planes and worlds. Amethyst is also excellent for meditation and lucid dreaming. It is known to open one's channels to telepathy, past life regression, clairaudience, clairvoyance, and communication with angels. Amethyst also protects against psychic attacks, especially during spiritual work, and protects one from thieves, and protects travelers.
DRUZY CRYSTALS have many tiny crystals like a "skin" of sparkly crystals. Druzy usually grew originally over another crystal or matrix, though they may not be attached to it currently. Occasionally they are floater clusters with no attachment previously to a matrix. Light and joy are brought to an environment or ritual by a Druzy Cluster. As a type of Crystal Cluster they also bring harmony to groups. They have energy that is especially helpful for Spiritual worship and Lightwork. Like other types of clusters, they can empower the energy of other crystals and stones.
