Ask a question

I'm often asked about how to choose a scrying mirror for divination. After all, this is a highly personal tool you will be using during ritual and ceremony and there are many questions to ask before you jump in using one.

I've developed this 16 page pdf manual with full color photographs to help you answer some questions that I am often asked by clients:

What are scrying mirrors?
Are they dangerous?
Should I choose glass or obsidian for scrying?
How do I cleanse my mirror?
How do I charge my mirror?

NOTE! Be aware before purchasing this listing:

1.) This is a downloadable PDF. No refunds will be issued to those who buy ONLY the manual.

2.) If you decide to buy a black mirror or obsidian mirror from us, you will be refunded the 99 cents purchase price of this manual.

3.) If you have already bought a mirror from us in the past, this is part of our new scrying package. Email me via Etsy and I will send this to you for FREE, once I verify your order history with us through Etsy records.

Our black scrying glass mirrors are generally made from vintage or antiques. This means they are 20+ years old and will show minor damage from wear and tear. Be sure to read each listing carefully to know what your mirror will truly look like.

We offer OBSIDIAN or BLACK GLASS in our MIRRORS. Be sure to ready your listing to know which type of mirror it is.

Cosmetic compacts vary too widely for us to guarantee we can convert it to black glass without damaging or breaking the mirror. Due to these issues, we no longer accept custom requests on converting compact mirrors that shoppers have in their possession.

We have converted hand mirrors to obsidian. Please contact us and provide photos so we can discuss converting it to an obsidian mirror. Minimum amount for conversion starts at $50 and how much your conversion will be depends on the size of the obsidian to be installed (for example, a 4 inch is more costly then a 3 inch obsidian mirror) and what type of crystals or stones you desire.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I provide the vintage mirror frame and have you replace with Obsidian and Orgonite?

PERHAPS! Before we can commit, please send us a direct email with photos of the mirror. If we can convert, we will let you know and provide a price. The buyer is responsible for postage, separate from the customization quote.

NOTE: we no longer convert cosmetic compacts for clients. We cannot guarantee the safe removal of the mirror due to variable construction techniques by the manufacturer of the compact.

I love your Obsidian Orgonite mirrors but want something with different stones. What can you do for me?

We have done custom Obsidian Orgonite mirrors for customers who wanted their own stones, pearls or a different gemstone then we offer. It depends on what you are interested in doing and if we have mirror frames on hand. Please drop us a DM to discuss in full.
