2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help!

* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

I kind of thought that what Brina meant - it's certainly what I would mean by the phrase 'found stones' - was that she'd go outside wherever she was and check out what was just lying there on the ground. Nothing fancy, just ordinary rocks, quite literally common as dirt - but perfectly capable of being useful in magical work, even though a lot of people don't think of it.


Yup.  An ergonomically-shaped chunk of gray granite works just fine for spells requiring a rock.

I would bring an amethyst, snowflake obsidian, lithium quartz, jade, and aquamarine. Maybe some red jasper, too.

Curious as to what others would bring!


Hmm this is a good question. I would probably take my lapis lazuli crystal skull, my amber piece, both my obsidian pieces, and my sodalite pig. :)

Lapis Lazuli for travelling if in cars, supposed to be good for that, Blue Obsidian or Snowflake Obsidian perhaps. Aquamarine if going over seas as its good for that too, supposed to be good as sometimes sailors wear it for travelling over water, etc. Amethyst for sure and clear quartz together as amplifies the energies. And maybe Garnet or Haematite as well for grounding purposes and also some selenite or sodalite too perhaps.

 Chiastolite, aside from it's other protective and spiritual attributes, it's
a really good traveling stone.

 The stones have a black equal armed cross on them and it always reminds
me of a compass and the four directions/cardinal points.

I constantly keep moonstone, sunstone and hematite with me so I think the only other one I would take with me if I was traveling would be amethyst and maybe lapis

Obsidian. Black obsidian. It has to be black. I only work in black...and sometimes shades of dark gray.

I'm not sure which is more unlikely. Catching me without a blade or a piece of obsidian...

Hematite, and I also don't like to go anywhere without labradorite and Tiger's eye.

I would bring clear crystal quartz. In fact I have a key chain with a clear crystal quartz stone on it. Crystal quartz and alexandrite are some of my favorites.

I would take black tourmaline (I wear a black tourmaline bracelet most days), black obsidian, moss agate (I have a particularly nice piece of this!) and probably bloodstone.

I have recently bought a piece of obsidian, and have been carrying it with me. I would also take selenite and quartz.

I always carry a small leather pouch about the size of my fist with a few choice items including a lapis lazuli, a lava rock, a piece of amber and a piece of petrified wood.

Moonstone and my rose quartz necklace! Maybe amethyst as well.
