This Viking Runes Pendant carries the wild spirit of the runes
Vikings believed that Runes were powerful symbols which carried great magical properties and were handed down to us from the gods themselves. By wearing this Viking Runes Pendant, you will acquire power of Runes.
In the most basic sense, runes were letters, but the word rune also comes from the word for ‘secret’. Runes denoted phonetic sounds (like letters) but also had individual meanings (like the glyphs of other ancient languages).
Runes are associated with the god Odin, who first discovered them (at great pain and effort) from the Well of Destiny. This discovery of runes means that they are not invented tools of humankind (in the cultural-religious schemata the Vikings understood) but part of the larger, deeper truth.
