Our December 2018 Gem Wise Set: Skadi: The Strength and Courage to Overcome Obstacles is here! Gem Wise is my course on the magic of gemstones. This year, we are exploring “A World of Magic”, where I take students on an adventure into the spiritual practices of global civilizations and meta-cultures. The gemstones covered in each class relate to a specific theme and will be available for you to purchase every month in a special Gem Wise set.
Each month, we learn about the stones in the Gem Wise set, including their metaphysical properties and how to use them. Each set ties to a special theme and the focal civilization of the month. Our examination spans from ancient to contemporary times. Together, we tap into the power of these gems, infusing our own modern practices with their ancient magic. Included in our discovery are each culture’s associated myths and lore that have captivated imaginations for ages.
This set includes the gemstones and engraved acrylic grid that accompany December’s Gem Wise class. If you would like to join us for December’s Gem Wise class, click here.
December 2018 Gem Wise Set: Skadi – The Strength and Courage to Overcome Obstacles
This December, we are exploring ancient Viking and Norse culture. Vikings were brave and bold warriors and explorers. Norse mythology is filled with magical trees, plants, creatures, gods and goddesses. This month, we’re diving into the lore and spiritual practices of the people who brought us Odin and the Runes, Thor and his hammer, Loki, Freya, and the famous Valhalla.
In this Gem Wise set, you will receive five very special gemstones inspired by goddess Skadi.
Skadi is a giantess and the Norse goddess of winter, snow, skiing, and the hunt. She is a symbol of independence and strength for women. Skadi is fierce in her stand for equality with male gods and does not back down when she puts her mind to something. Like many winter goddesses, Skadi is stormy and unpredictable, and relentless in her pursuit of justice. She has passion and determination to live life in all its fullness. Skadi symbolizes the darkness (the winter) within us, and we strive to embrace her wild, untamed spirit as we integrate our darkness with our light during the cold months.
Now, I will not reveal too much here, because we are excited with anticipation to explore these gems in our classroom this December. You won’t want to miss this class!
This set includes five stones to help you invoke the strength and courage of Skadi: one (1) black phantom quartz, one (1) iolite, one (1) Namibian lucky quartz, one (1) sodalite, and one (1) Jacinto De Compostela quartz. You will also receive an engraved acrylic designed to grid and hold the spirit of Skadi and the intentions of these stones.

**Not all items in this set are from the civilization of focus. Where possible we gather items from the civilization of origin. However, when this is not possible, we gather items that we believe reflect the energy of this civilization. Athena will discuss in class which items are sourced from the country of focus, and which ones simply reflect or represent the energy of this civilization.
This listing is for one (1) December 2018 Gem Wise Set: Skadi – The Strength and Courage to Overcome Obstacles, as described above, along with a special parchment containing descriptions of your stones and a blessing to read aloud. Yours will arrive lovingly parceled for your enjoyment and delight.
