Sunstone rune set comes with 25 highly polished carved runes in a velveteen pouch displaying the Elder Futhark runes. This is an Elder Futhark set.
Sunstone was associated with the Sun during the Renaissance period because of its lovely sparkly coloring of an orange-gold hue. It was used by magicians to call upon the influences of the sun. With these said powers of the sun and light, Sunstone is believed to clear and cleans all the bodies chakra points, restoring joy and nurturing the spirit. It is particularly energizing to the Base and Sacral Chakras, stimulating leadership and will, creativity and sexuality, this is mentioned in Judy Halls's books.
In ancient times people believed that this crystal once formed part of the sun and fell to earth during a full solar eclipse!
This set also contains a blank rune (additional stone with no stave carved on) also known as Odin's rune or the Wyrd rune - this is a modern day addition which some people prefer. If you prefer to stay with the more traditional feel of rune casting you can omit this stone from your castings. Use your own intuition as to if you would like to keep the blank rune in your set, enjoy your journey!
