Earth Elemental Gnome or Fairy Miniature and Enchanted Crystal Ball Situated in Real Acorn Ideal for Dollhouse Scale Original Design

A Little Knowledge Goes a Long Way…

An elemental is a mythological being first appearing in the alchemical works of Paracelsus. The basic concept of an elemental refers to the ancient idea of elements as fundamental building blocks of nature. Paracelsus identified four types of beings associated with each of the four elements of water, fire, air, and earth. These are the spirits that govern all nature, the “forces of life”.

The Earth Elemental is the Gnome. Gnomes are the spiritual beings who inhabit the spirit realm of the elements. As spirits of energy they are commonly invisible to the average person, only those that possess second sight can see them clearly. However being on the first level of the spirit realm, they are close enough to the physical realm in order to easily inter-react with it.

Gnomes are most frequently seen is the brownie, or elf, a mischievous and grotesque little creature from twelve to eighteen inches high, usually dressed in green or russet brown. Most of them appear as very aged, often with long white beards, and their figures are inclined to rotundity. They can be seen scampering out of holes in the stumps of trees and sometimes they vanish by actually dissolving into the tree itself. (Per Paracelsus)

They are concerned with the products and treasures of the earth. Being of the earth, Gnomes usually live in the soil, rocks, beneath the ground, and under the tree roots. Gnomes will only help humans if they have been considerate of nature and treat it well. They are very helpful of those who have established a connection with them through prior acts of kindness. When working with humans, Gnomes are most helpful with healing the bones.

The subgroups of the Earth Gnomes consist of Brownies, Dryads, Durdalis, Earth Spirits, Elves, Hamadryads, Pans, Pygmies, Sylvestres, and Satyrs.

Elementals are governed by the Archangels.

Many believe Elementals are from a different realm, coming and going between our realm and theirs at their leisure. According to Quantum Physics, there are parallel universes much like our own, but in some of them animals who are extinct here, still exist there. Unicorns run and graze freely. Elementals live in the realms where they are accepted and they can live freely and they easily travel between the universes where there is an overlap of the two universes. You can say, like a portal.

(This information was gathered from various online sources dealing with Quantum Physics, The Elements, and Elementals.)

“The Details”...

A clear crystal ball, which has a pinkish cast, is situated in a real Oak acorn. It is “hidden” by faux grasses.

This enchanting nature crystal ball is designed to represent what a crystal ball belonging to an earth elemental, a gnome, or fairy might look like. It seems natural that they would use something from nature as a base and then use grasses to hide it from outsiders.

The crystal ball and the acorn measure 4/6“high. The grasses, which extend upwards to “hide” the crystal ball, at their highest point, are about 1”. The glue used is non toxic and it comes from a smoke free home. It is not a toy, thus, it is inappropriate for small children. It is one of a kind.

Your fairy or elemental would love this, as would your miniature wizard or witch. This would look great in an inside fairy garden or in a fairy house.
