This set of 25 runes is made of fluorite, and the pieces are hand-carved and highly polished. They are flat stones, which make them especially good for rune-casting. These fluorite runes are engraved with the Elder Futhark alphabet, and include one blank rune stone. The stones come with ONE pouch and a rune symbol reference sheet. You may choose any of the pouch colors shown in the picture. Please send us a message with your order. If no specific color is chosen, we will select a random pouch for you. Rune stones are approximately .55-.75" long. All stones are unique and will vary slightly from picture. Every order will also receive a free gift, and one of our Precious Possessions gemstone folklore sheets. Thank you for shopping with us.

My set isn't quite the same as this one (which I will explain in a moment), so I can't describe the free pouch, but I will say that the runes themselves are quite endearing. This is my first set, so I'm rather excited!
I initially purchased amethyst runes (the listing without a pouch), but was promptly and courteously informed that they had been listed accidentally and were, in fact, out of stock. I was offered to receive either a different set of runes for no extra charge or a full refund. Thus, I elected to instead receive a set of fluorite runes! In any case, enough background information...
The runes I received are quite similar to the ones in the example image, although with slightly less variation. They are all mostly clear (although on certain surfaces, the clear parts have a slight green tint), with purple streaks throughout that vary in width and shade--some are a pale lavender, while some are a very dark purple. Along with my runes, to my surprise, I also received a free tumbled tiger's eye!
As far as size goes, they are all approximately the size of a penny, or slightly less. The general shape for them is an oval or rounded rectangle, but a few of them have more abstract shapes. Their thicknesses range from 0.1"~0.2".
Fluorite is a somewhat delicate material, so I was a bit worried about how they would survive the shipping process, but they came out largely unscathed. There are a few tiny rough spots on a few of them, but no dents or chips. They were well-packed in bubble wrap.
I didn't anticipate this review would get so long. All in all, I'm quite pleased with my purchase! If you're searching for a set that can travel with you, you have small hands (like me), or you just prefer smaller runes, I would definitely recommend these. Not to mention, this company has great customer service.
I'm hoping that those amethyst runes come back in stock soon, because I will most certainly be returning to buy them!
