Zoological

Zoological Items for All of Your Workings

Animals being the magical creatures they are, it is not surprising that animal curios have a place in hoodoo and other magical traditions. Although not for everybody, these selected items still embody the power and qualities of their animal spirits. Know that we only offer items that have been legally harvested and/or are the natural by-products of another industry. If it isn't legal, ethical, and dead already, we won't provide it.

Abalone Shell

Abalone Shell

These unique and beautiful shell serves multiple purposes -- as a smudge bowl, an altar decoration, and as a protective amulet. Place sand or crushed stone in the bowl and use it as a resting place and cinder catch for your sage stick or as a burner for loose herbs. Although the shell can take the heat, many resting surfaces cannot, so be careful where you place it. Many of our customers get one for burning, one for altar displays, and one for the window to reflect negativity. Each shell is approximately 5-7 inches long.
