Tuesday comes from him, and his runic stave is the Tiwaz.

Handcrafted with premium certified kosher soy wax and pure cotton wick, this stunning TYR Artisan Alchemy™ Blót Kyndill is magickally charged with Garnet and a triplet of herbs sacred to TYR and to the cause of Justice including Mustard Seed, Wolfsbane Essence (nontoxic) and Celandine. TYR is generously scented with the fiery oils of Cinnamon Bark, Roasted Chestnuts, Frankincense and more.

TYR is adorned with a 1.28 x 1.6 Inches (32 x 40 mm) heavy high quality antiqued copper plated irminsul pendant charm which may be used as a necklace pendant after the candle is burned. An Irminsul (Old Saxon, probably meaning "great/mighty pillar" or "arising pillar") was a kind of pillar which is attested as playing an important role in the Germanic paganism of the Saxon people.

The oldest chronicle describing an Irminsul refers to it as a tree trunk erected in the open air. A Germanic god Irmin, inferred from the name Irminsul and the tribal name Irminones, is sometimes presumed to have been the national god or demi-god of the Saxons. It has been suggested that Irmin was more probably an aspect or epithet of some other deity – most likely Wodan (Odin). Irmin might also have been an epithet of the god Ziu (Tyr) in early Germanic times, only later transferred to Odin, as certain scholars ascribe to the idea that Odin replaced Tyr as the chief Germanic deity at the onset of the Migration Period. The Old Norse form of Irmin is Jörmunr, which just like Yggr was one of the names of Odin. Yggdrasil ("Yggr's horse") was the yew or ash tree from which Odin sacrificed himself, and which connected the nine worlds. Jakob Grimm connects the name Irmin with Old Norse terms like iörmungrund ("great ground", i.e. the Earth) or iörmungandr ("great snake", i.e. the Midgard serpent).

Pillar measures 2x3".

Comes beautifully packaged.
