Bargain Binge: Stone of Transformation, smudge mix, Wiccan keyring and chakra stones

I'm off eclipse-watching, so here are a few more, mostly New Age, bargains to keep you busy in the meantime.

First up is this lump of black rock, sorry, *Big Moldavite* Stone of Transformation. This crystal has many amazing properties, including grammar randomisation and the ability to restore political entities to their state a few years earlier:

Moldavite: make of it what you will, but Moldavite is a tektite that fell to earth about 14 million years ago. I can do no better than refer you to the book by Robert Simmons and Kathy Warner MOLDAVITE: Starborn Stone of Transformation Because that is what Moldavite has come to be known as; the stone of transformation. Not just a gradual transformation, Moldavite can take you on a lightening rollercoaster ride if you're ready, and sometimes if your not.
There are very few crystals that have had a whole book written about them, with the exception of the versatile quartz. But Moldavite has attracted enough attention for a whole book. Moldavite is quite scarce and rare being found only in a couple of areas of Czechoslovakia, and when it is gone there will be no more. A dark green glassy structure, it's shape being formed through the intense heat during its descent and landing.
It is said that the Grail chalice was formed from a great emerald that fell from the sky, perhaps it was this moldavite. Moldavite can have a very profound effect on its keeper. What has come to be known as the 'Moldavite Flush' happens to many people when they first hold a piece of Moldavite, heat rises up the body from the crystals energy. A very interesting and active stone, and I can recommend you read the book for a full appreciation of what Moldavite is and how it can affect you. Moldavite can tip the scales on change in your life so be ready and enjoy the ride.

Smudging is a Native American practice, which explains this Celtic Herbs Smudge Mix:

Celtic Mix has been blended using traditional British and European herbs for cleansing, purifying, blessing and invoking helpful spirits to your sacred space.Use for healing,therapy, meditation, prayer, ceremony and making sacred objects ~ in fact any occasion as working in sacred space will enhance your connection to spirit.

So presumably it contains the same plants that grow wild in my back garden, then. At least it isn't claimed to be the Genuine Ancient Druid Smudging Mix.

Wiccans can now promote their faith with their lost keys by using this 'BLESSED BE ' Keyring With Pentacle !. It appears to be a classy, well-crafted item:

Acrylic double sided keyring with a pentacle inside the words ' Blessed Be '. The design measures approx 5cm x 3.5cm, making it about 5.5cm x 4cm overall.

Need to rebalance yourself after all this excitement? You need CHAKRA HEALING STONES & POUCH CHD WITH REIKI:

You are bidding on a fabulous set of chakra healing stones/crystals. The set comprises of a lovely black velvet drawstring pouch, seven chakra crystals/stones, and instructions.
A Chakra, from the SANSKIRT word meaning WHEEL, is a spinning vortex or a wheel of energy. All knowledge of the seven energy centres of the body, which are better known as the CHAKRAS or the LOTUSES can be traced back to the ancient.
This set comes with full instructions and a diagram of where to place the stones on the body and the healing elements.Before being despatched to the winning bidder the stones will be cleansed and charged with Reiki.

Bargain of the Day: holy soap

Early Christians considered bathing to be an evil Pagan habit, not appropriate for them. But now that's changed if this auction for a HUGE LOT - 20 BARS OF HANDMADE CHRISTIAN SOAP is anything to go by.

You are bidding on 20 bars of handcrafted soap. The bars are approx. 3.5-4 oz. and come in a protective plastic, closeable container.

Bargain of the Day: Ship in a bottle

[Noah's Ark in a bottle]Getting a little model ship in a bottle is quite a neat trick. You need to make the model with the masts flat, insert it in the bottle and then pull the masts up. Obviously, then, divine miracles were required to make this Unique Noah's Ark In A Bottle which comes This beautiful Noah's Ark figurine is inside a bottle about the size of a wine bottle. It comes complete with this lovely wooden stand. A must for collectors! But wait a minute. Look at the base of the bottle. They cheated. Waaaa!

Bargain of the Day: cross made from shells

eBay UK has a different class of religious tat than its American sibling. In particular, the British site has tat from years gone by, like this VICTORIAN SHELL ART CROSS ON WOOD. As you might expect, the descriptions are somewhat restrained, and no miracles are promised:

This item is typical of the rustic Victorian interest in nature,and the use of shells as decoration for different objects. It is a wooden cross covered with sea shells which have then been varnished. A few shells are missing but could easily be slotted in, a few shells are cracked but this does not detract from the beauty of this piece of folk history. Shells are typical of those found in most English coastal areas. Approx 31cm high and 20cm across base.

With six days to go, the bidding currenly stands at a tenner.

Bargains of the Day: mystery objects

Today's bargains are a complete mystery to the vendors. They have no idea what they are, other than they are religious things, and probably Roman Catholic. First up is a Religious Artefact ??, the Holy Wallet:

Forgive my ignorance but I dont really know what this is, it consists of a cross with jesus on it with a horse shoe shaped metal surround with fourteen scenes of the crucifiction, and one larger scene depicting a vision, the case when closed forms a book with a clasp to keep it closed, it measures appx four and a half inches by three inches, the case is faded and a bit tatty but otherwise it is quite a nice item.

Next, we have a VERY UNUSUAL VINTAGE SMALL RELIGIOUS ITEM ???:

I am not sure what this item was originally meant for - but am sure someone will know what it is and be pleased with it. In a small blue casing - there are two sqaure silvery "plaques" ? : - both different notations.
On the top half there is a note with : -
Oh Mary Conceived
Without sin pray for
us who have recourse
to thee
-----
Regina Sine Labe Originali
Concepta Ora Pro Nobis
Qui Ad Te Confugimus
When closed measures: - 6cm X 3.5cm
When open measures : - 6cm X 8cm
Very unusual - I have never seen anything quite like this before but it obviously is a very religious item and I am sure someone will be delighted with it.
God Bless

Looking closely, one of the plaques depicts Mary, and as she'd be old enough for one right now, I must conclude that it's her bus pass.

Bargain of the Day: Hello Kitty zodiac figures

It is a rare day indeed when I am tempted to put a bid in for something worthy of being a Bargain of the Day, but I admit that only the cost of shipping these 12 Hello Kitty Zodial Figures {Glow in Dark} from Hong Kong puts me off.

There's no information about system requirements, but I'm guessing Windows. Given the traditional security of that product, I'm sure a wily geek could come up with some means of dealing with those who would waste other people's bandwidth in their quest to be the world's most annoying idiot. Ideally one that would leave the evangelist with no-one but their imaginary friend to talk to.

I can't wait an hour for it to be tomorrow, so here's an extra bonus piece of patriotic American religious tat: SET OF 4 PATRIOTIC WOODEN ANGELS / NICE. There's no description - just a picture. Not sure why they have the EU flag on their wings though.

Bargain of the Day: C-rap tapes

Proverbs in Rap 2 Cassettes Sealed & NEW will surely bring your rebellious teen to Jesus:

You will be bidding on a new factory sealed double cassette set. The name of the tape is Some Awesome Stuff Rappin' the rules, a wise man's tools. It is King Solomon's Proverbs in Rap. This set would be great for a Sunday School Class, a Teen youth group or church club. It would also make a great gift for a teen. The tapes come in a clear plastic storage case.

It's so effective, I already have a name for the genre - C-rap!
