Natural Lodestone/Magnetite Raw
A lodestone is a naturally magnetized piece of the mineral magnetite. They are naturally occurring magnets, which can attract iron. The property of magnetism was first discovered in antiquity through lodestones. These properties of magnetism, make lodestone unique. Metaphysically, lodestone has been used for grounding energy, clear thinking, and focusing, detailed work, as well as, helping one with making decisions. Lodestone is very effective at the Root Chakra for a feeling of being grounded, centered and protected. These have been used for centuries within magick to attract positive energies and repel things that may cause bad luck. There is a variety of ways to use these. Remember to also buy lodestone food that is sold separately and is iron filings (i.e. small flecks of iron) that are used to both highlight the magnetic fields around natural lodestone and to 'feed' lodestones that are tasked with a purpose, such as drawing a lover, attracting money to a business, and other similar things. Each of these vary in size and shape. Pieces will vary in size, shape and texture. You'll receive one to several pieces. Options are 1 - 3 Ounces.
I plan to experiment with pieces of lodestone floated on cedar shingles in shallow dishes. If they reliably point to the earth's magnetic north then It will add one more piece of evidence to my hypothesis that Minoan sailors used lodestones to help them navigate back an forth across the Atlantic ocean in the copper trade during the Bronze Age.
