I had never heard of tigrina before we found these in Tucson, and it’s been interesting trying to figure out what it really is. Some sources say that tigrina is a combination of tiger’s eye and pietersite, but pietersite itself is a combination of gold tiger’s eye and blue quartz in matrix, and it’s also known… Continue reading Untitled

This covellite baby is mine, but we do have another one. Covellite is a deep, indigo stone used for release and transformation; I was called to use it for ancestor work. It’s a copper sulfide and often occurs with other copper minerals–I think this one has little patches of chalcopyrite. I’ve seen covellite palm stones and… Continue reading Untitled

Living the Wheel of the Year

It’s always a little weird once Samhain is over, but it seems like way too soon to start thinking about Yule, never mind decorating the altar. We tried just switching over the decorations when it “felt right,” but that still felt really arbitrary and didn’t seem to have any basis in reality.  Here at RWT,… Continue reading Living the Wheel of the Year

Book Review: The Art of Witch

There’s so many “new witch” books flooding the market these days, it’s hard to tell the difference between many of the — but “The Art of Witch” by Fiona Horne stands out from the crowd. It isn’t just because of the black, flocked cover and the red ribbon bookmark, though I very much appreciate a… Continue reading Book Review: The Art of Witch
