This piece is made with bloodstone and garnet. It features the face of an Elder, a Merlin or wise one. Representative of those of our ancestors who understood the ways of the wild, survival and how to read the messages of the Earth. Bloodstone is a stone of ancestral connection, helping us to understand ourselves through the many stories of people and cultures that intertwine to become our own. It also helps us to heal the lines of story, truth and lessons that need to be learned. Garnet is a stone of inner strength, presence, determination, endurance and patience. Together these are wonderfully healing for our relationship with the ancestors, and how we understand ourselves in relationship with them.
