Natural Wood Element Symbols *Hazel* Portable Altar!

Included in a treasury featuring a collection of the different pentacles to be found here on Etsy by Ogma here: http://www.etsy.com/treasury/Njk3MzAyNXwyNzIwMjIzNTI3/pretty-pentacles?ref=pr_treasury

This is a set of element symbols or quarter markers made from Hazel wood. The most well-known symbolic representations of Earth, Air, Fire, Water have been deeply burned into the surface of each chunky tablet,and the "Spirit" symbol in this set is represented by a pentacle, making this an easily recognisable and classic altar set. These are ideal for anyone living in a small space who doesn't have room for a permanent altar, and are small enough to easily slip into your bag if you're heading out into the countryside. Hazel wood is both protective and lucky, making it an ideal choice for altar items.

These elemental markers are an extremely discreet way to turn regular living space into sacred space; they can be placed in the appropriate part of your home in a "feng shui" kind of way, they can form or be part of your altar display, or just brought out when you're performing ritual. They can be made from any wood I have available and in almost any size you prefer. This set shows the most commonly used elemental symbols, but there are at least two other sets of elemental symbols I can use in order to make them truly "secret" sigils, either because you don't want people seeing "witchy" symbols or simply because you like to be different! The "Spirit" symbol can be any protective symbol, a Dragon'e Eye, pentacle, pentagram, Faery Star (septagram), a bindrune or pretty much any other symbol you'd like, or it can be left out altogether... after all, your personal presence is meant to provide the "Spirit" part of the equasion!

Hazel is an exceptionally magical tree, as well as being extremely useful on the physical plane. It is best known for being the Celtic Tree of Wisdom, and is said to bring luck, fertility, intelligence and inspiration. Together with Elder, it is said to be one of the best woods for wands. If you hang it in your window it will protect your house from lightning, and it is also supposed to help make wishes come true!

Size: Up to an inch and one eighth across and just over three eighths of an inch high.
28-30mm x 11mm.

They will come with a list of the magical properties of the wood, a picture and care instructions.

Please be aware that some countries do not allow the importation of any wooden items that still have the bark attached. It is up to you to ensure that an item is not in breach of the customs regulations of your country before you buy.
