Elder Futhark Rune Mini-Staves (in Wine-Red Velvet Draw String Bag)
Made from a single branch of Camphor Tree Wood. Each Rune is carved with intent and Galdr sung over the Rune as it is carved. Every part of the process is handled by me personally. From the selection of the branch (as gifted or from necessary pruning) through to consecration.
The Runes are Consecrated and Activated by myself for each set.
I will send with instructions to personalize them to yourself, and details on how to perform the Three Norns Activation Ceremony for your personal set.
An extract from Germania by Cornelius Tacitus (A.D. 98). This observation from Tacitus is one of the sources we have regarding Rune Divination from ancient times.
"For auspices and the casting of lots they have the highest possible regard. Their procedure in casting lots is uniform. They break off a branch of a fruit-tree and slice it into strips; they distinguish these by certain runes and throw them, as random chance will have it, on to a white cloth. Then the priest of the State if the consultation is a public one, the father of the family if it is private, after a prayer to the gods and an intent gaze heavenward, picks up three, one at a time, and reads their meaning from the runes scored on them. If the lots forbid an enterprise, there can be no further consultation that day; if they allow it, further confirmation by auspices is required."
