Tumblr people, sea witches, pagans, nature witches, anyone really. I have had a lovely day combing the beach at Marsden Bay, South Tyneside by my home today. I had a fruitful few hours finding a cove littered with forming hag stones, and I found several. I only take what I need, so I kept one for me, my partner, one for my altar and the 2 you see here with a few limpet shells.
I am very happy to share these few little witch-picked finds with anyone out there who isn’t by a beach, is landlocked, doesn’t have transport etc. So a pagan friend who needs and will find use for them. They have not been washed or soaked as I believe the sea water is part of their power.
I took along 3 beautiful big shells to throw back into the sea, so these gifts are even with nature (I thanked Manannan my patron God).
It will be a first served via PM, I will be happy to pay postage anywhere in the UK. Sorry for not worldwide but I am pretty poor.
Earlier today, I went to the shore of the sound. Having recently learned about sigilry and how to correctly piece letters together to craft a traditional sigil. I desired the Blessings of Manannan. The sigil for “Blessings of Manannan” is the following:

Thanks so much for your reply Winter. I tried to send you an “ask” but I don’t think you have them enabled!
I didn’t know you could get anti-histamine cream. I will look in to that for future reference! Thanks for the tip.
I don’t think my general skin irritations are allergy based. Doctors have blamed stress to scabies to all sorts and no remedies are working. The irritation on the hands was worsened by the ring and not wearing it plus anti-histamines has helped but not gotten rid of it all.
I’m glad I have a gem that is going to help me face my fears! And thank you; I think it is nice too! :)
Hi no problem. Thank you for pointing out my ask is not enabled, I didn’t realise! it is now enabled in case you have any asks :)
Today is a day of firsts for me.
I bought my first gem which is on a nice little necklace. Out of all the ones there, it really called to me. I also bought my first Tarot deck. It is a Pagan style - the artwork by Luca Raimondo. It is really attractive to me and I felt more drawn to it than the Ryder style I saw.
Could someone please help me identify what gem this is exactly, on the necklace? It is totally opaque and black. The woman at the shop said she thinks it may be hematite but I have a hematite ring and it is much more silver than black and is very shiny, so I am doubtful… Regardless; she said it was very grounding. I don’t know whether it is or not but I enjoy having it and wearing it. It sort of serves as a reminder to me that I am on the path to finding my faith and it is a reassuring thing to have with me so it has power to me even if it doesn’t hold its own.
I feel bad; I don’t know why but I lied about the deck and said I was buying it for a friend. I am still new to this I guess and I panicked. I don’t know why I felt the need to lie considering I was in a safe place. To avoid suspicion, I agreed to have it gift wrapped even though it was for myself.
I am totally beating myself up over it. I blame my social anxieties. I am surprised I went in to the store at all - I had everything lined up to be shipped to me off Amazon.
Kind lady that helped me today in Melbourne; I am sorry for lying to you. Please forgive me.
I miss my hematite ring. I feel that I can’t wear it as it irritates my skin too badly; the skin is still red, sore and sometimes dry and cracked. Two fingers are even blistering on the knuckles. I am so frustrated.
My skin is still incredibly itchy and sore even though I did the treatments. Doctors are baffled. A friend suggested that perhaps I am just so used to scratching my skin it has become a habit. I considered it for a second but there is no way. My thighs and back are on fire right now - there is no way this is psychological at all.
I’m trying to drink more water, eat healthier and I am using earth friendly washing liquid and fabric softener. I’ve taken an anti histamine, an ibuprofen and a paracetomol to null a lot of the symptoms but I just want these ailments to go.
If anyone has any advice, i.e. herbal, magickal etc. please let me know.
For now I will resist scratching and read my tarot book and perhaps do my first readings tonight.
I get skin allergies and when I’ve had a reaction to a metal I’ve worn, usually ones that are plated and contain lead or nickel, I flared up so so bad, and no tablet helped, but the pharmacist gave me an anti-histamine cream to put right on it. It had virtually vanished in a day.
Also, the necklace, from what you described, sounds like obsidian to me. It could also be jet but it’s more likely to be obsidian, all my hematite has been silver toned too. It’s great for opening up psychically and giving you strength to confront your fears. It’s a really nice necklace :)
If you need any advice, always feel free to drop me an ask,
