The soil of the western part of the Dingle Peninsula, in County Kerry, Ireland, is composed in a major part of quartz. The countless crystal caves and veinsrunning through the ground provide material for my crafts, which I always gather reasonably and respectfully. The Kerry Quartz, also known as Kerry Crystal or Dingle Diamonds, is a very special type of quartz, which purity equalsits metaphysical and healing properties.
It is one of the sacred Druidic trees, associated with protection, strength, success and stability, healing, fertility, health, money, potency and good luck. Oak has been considered sacred by every culture that has encountered this tree, but it was held in particular esteem by the Norse and Celts becauseo f its size, longevity, and nutritious acorns.
Be it found tumbled by thesea, as clusters or clear pure points, the Kerry Quartz powerfully cleanses all impurities through the different energy bodies, and also provides an invincible protection. Opening the higher Chakras and spiritual awareness, the Kerry Quartz is at the image of the land which created it: wild, beautiful and strong.
The oak is frequently associated with Gods of thunder and lightning such as Zeus, Thor, and the Lithuanian God Perkunas. This association may be due to the oak's habit of being hit by lightning during storms. Specific oak trees have also been associated with the 'Wild Hunt', which is led by Herne in England and by Wodin in Germany. Oakgalls, known as Serpent Eggs, were used in magical charms. Acorns gathered at night held the greatest fertility powers. The Druids and Priestesses listened to the rustling oak leaves and the wrens in the trees for divinatory messages. Burning oak leaves purifies the atmosphere. In general, oak can be used in spells for protection, strength, success and stability; the different varieties will lend their own special 'flavour' to the magic.
The Dingle Peninsula (Corca Dhuibhne) culminates in the Irish mainland's westernmost point. In the shadow of Mt Brandon, a maze of fuchsia-fringed boreens weaves together an ancient landscape of prehistoric ring forts and beehive huts, standing stones and holy wells, picturesque hamlets and abandoned villages. It is there, on its meandering seashores framed with purple cliffs and emerald vegetation, where I go to secret coves torespectfully gather a gift or two left by the Ocean. Every material I use in my crafts has been gathered with gratitude and respect, and is a unique piece of this beautiful western edge of Ireland. There is magic in all of them.
