The Crown of Stone

In the symbols of our cycle of thirteen moons ruled by the Goddesses of Sovereignty there are keys to unlock the power we intuitively feel lie in crystals. These are found hidden in the modern tradition of "birth-stones." Just as each of these moons are representative of the thirteen aspects of the Queen's sovereignty, so also can each of these Queens be symbolized by unique crystalline formations.

None of these are opaque, rather all are translucent windows translating Her light as the clear tones of celestial music through their lattice structures. They make a circlet of power interlaced together by the filigreed circuits of silver and gold by which She binds them to conform to a Crown of Stone. It is thus in their placement on the head of Her worthy King that the Lady of Sovereignty, Kerridwen the Great, does anoint and consecrate our First Lord - Kernunnos, to empower him.
