Runes are alphabetical signs at least eighteen centuries old. The Runes have been used in poetry, large stone carvings, and foretelling the future by the ancient tribes of the Germans, Vikings, and Celts. The stones symbols are made up of basic alphabet of 24. The runes are called the FuThark, and each individual rune is thought to be a magical talisman having its own unique set of meanings.
Every set of rune stones are made from genuine gemstones, and the set includes a blank destiny stone, it's own pouch, and a mat to place the stones on while divining.
One of the most commonly used runeic alphabet is the Elder Futhark, used for writing Proto-Norse, consists of 24 runes that often are arranged in three groups of eight; each group is referred to as an AEtt. The earliest known sequential listing of the full set of 24 runes dates to approximately CE 400 and is found on the Kylver Stone in Gotland, Sweden.
In the early 20th century, Germanic Mysticism became responsible for creating new forms of "runic magic", some of which were continued or developed further by contemporary Germanic Neopagans. Modern systems of runic divination are based on Hermeticism, classical Occultism, and the I Ching.
There is evedence that, in addition to to being a writing system, runes have historically have been used in magic and divination. The earliest case of this was found in Rome and the Germanic Iron Age. Non-linguistc incriptions, and the word 'alu'. They had 'Erilaz' which appears to be a person versed in runes, including their magical purposes.
In Medieval times, the Sigrdrifumal mentions 'Victory Runes' are to be carved on a sword. "Some on the grasp and some on the inlay, and name Tyr twice."
Modern authors like Ralph Blum sometimes include a "blank rune" in their sets. Some were thought to replace a lost rune, but according to Ralph Blum this was the god Odin's rune, the rune of the beginning and the end, representing "the divine in all human transactions."
Runes can be made out of clay, wood, or stone. Some people even have Rune Cards. When reading, or 'casting' stones, you can select the stones one-by-one from their bag, or throw them down at random for a reading.
