This Futhark rune divination set is made from sycamore branches with the bark still on them. Each rune is burnt with the symbols of the Elder Futhark rune set, with 25 runes in total including the blank rune. Only a natural staining agent (linseed oil) is used to cure the runes, with no varnish or unnatural substances. The branches are tempered by the elements of fire, water, earth, air, and time. Each set of runes is cut from the same branch in order to assure continuity of being. Each rune symbol is burned into the wood, NOT stamped.
Runes are typically used as an oracle or divination tool to obtain information from the higher self. Like tarot cards, there are countless ways to use runes -- from simple and detailed spreads to asking a question and pulling a rune to find the answer.
