Elder Futhark oak runes with gold
Unusual set of runes for casting and divination. 24 Elder Futhark runes, larger in size than usual. Rune markings are burnt on slices of oak wood which are left natural with the bark rim intact. Each slice is sanded and oiled with food grade tung oil for durability and to guard against embedded dirt from handling. Each piece also includes a touch of 24 carat gold leaf.
The runes come in a reindeer hide pouch (vegetable tanned, originating from Lapland) which has a double drawstring closure. Inside the pouch you'll find a separate, circular piece of leather which can be used as a base to pile the runes on that are not in use, as well as covering the runes inside the pouch when it's closed. Both the pouch and the base circle include a bindrune marking that consists primarily of the runes Mannaz, Raidho and Ansuz, with the additional Tiwaz forming from the binding. You could call this bindrune "The Journey of the Wise Mind".
Inside the leather pouch, when fully open, you'll find a pattern consisting of eight Algiz runes in a circle, like compass directions. You can use this pattern as a reading cloth, assigning meanings to each position and interpreting your runes in relation to those.
Each of the oak runes is organic and unique in its shape. Cut from the same branch, the sizes are not entirely uniform but on average each slice has a diameter of approx. 4 cm (1.6") - some pieces may be a little smaller or little larger than this average size. The pieces are approx. 1 cm (0.4") thick.
The leather pouch, when closed, has a diameter of approx. 15 cm (6").
With this rune set, you'll receive a printed soft-cover copy of the AETT mini course that has so far been available as a PDF guide for learning the Elder Futhark runes. Do let me know if you also want the digital file and you can have it free with this purchase as well.
