On Sale through Beltaine. After that the price for this magic / magick altar tool will be $40.00.
This one of a kind 2.5 inch Landscape Jasper ritual altar bowl was hand carved and polished to bring out the rich iron stain veins and the wood grain effects of the inclusions. There is a translucent section of Plasma agate, which gets it's rich green hue from Chrome.
This piece is ideal for working magick. You can fill it with sacred salt for cleansing and calling quarters, fragrant oils or water for blessings.
My photos were taken in natural sunlight so as best to display the natural colors inherent in the the stone. The piece is much brighter than the photos can convey.
