Cabochons are a method of presenting crystals and stones. Instead of faceting a gem, it’s polished smooth. This technique was used before cutting faceted crystals became a thing, and is still popular today. Opaque materials like Jasper and some Feldspar just look better as a cabochon.

Suns, Snowflakes, Clouds
Use suns, snowflakes, and clouds to keep in touch with the rhythm of the seasons! Just display these carvings on an altar. You can also use them as talismans for weather spells.
Moons are perfect for connecting to Lunar energies. You can also switch them out on an altar or magickal work space based on the phases of the moon. Charge one during a particular phase to keep that energy in your space.
Display your sign(s) in your personal space! Also great for working with astrology in general. Keep or wear signs during retrogrades as reminders of the space weather.
