9-18 Piece Divination Bone Sets

$36.00 - $116.00

“Naughty John, Naughty John, does his work with his apron on. Cuts your throat and takes your bones, sells 'em off for a coupla stones.”

―Libba Bray, The Diviners

 

In bone divination, also known as throwing the bones, bones are softly tossed (like dice) and then interpreted by the patterns. Throwing the bones in a variety of forms is traditional in many cultures around the world, including Africa, Asia, and the Americas. There are often other small objects included such as shells, roots, nuts, and amulets of all kinds.

Mother Maggie’s one-of-a-kind starter/travel bone sets each contain an assortment of 9-18 (labeled) real bones, teeth, claws, shells, roots, nuts, and seeds, amulets and talismans, and a detailed guideline sheet of suggested symbolism, housed in an antique tin.

We will not knowingly carry bones from an endangered or protected species. We do not support poaching of animals. Our sources obtain bones from natural and predator deaths, road kills, and legal hunting and trapping operations. 

Each piece has been cleansed by Mother Maggie’s during curation, but cleansing the set and each piece yourself (with a spiritual cologne or by smoke) while getting to know the collection is suggested. We also carry 2 great books about bone-throwing.
