Volcanic igneous gemstone
Black, brave and beautiful shards of midnight glass
Give me peace and calm and inner light, reflect the moonlight.
Talisman around my neck,
As passion ignites my fury and the truth cannot be silenced.
Protect and purify
Cleanse my soul in the darkness of this night
Reflect the majesty of a thousand warriors.
Pele Goddess of fire
Watch over me, give me strength to fight
Let me vanquish the evil voices that speak to me
From the belly of the volcano.

This was for d’Verse and is about snowflake obsidian which is one of the gemstones associated with my birth sign Scorpio- there are six in total- beryl, apache tear, aquamarine, coral, obsidian, and topaz. Snowflake Obsidian, is a stone associated with Scorpio in Ayurvedic astrology. It is a beautiful colour, and is seen as a talisman. I have always been drawn to truth, this is a Scorpion characteristic, but also something that came to me through my name. Alice is of teutonic origin and means “the wise counsellor, or the truthful one.” I think Alison came from Alice.
