Sheloya’s Hoodoo bones are meant for people who are learning to read bones or want a more “portable” version of them. When you’re first starting out, these will get you used to it. In time, you may wish to replace some of them with other symbolic objects you gather along your path. If you’re an advanced bone reader, these are easier to carry, and more replaceable if lost or stolen. They are also easier for your querants to understand, which makes life easier for those who do distance readings. It’s easy to show them what’s going on. They still require some vision to truly understand though. Here’s our post in the Orisha Online Altar on how to read Sheloya’s bones.
You can order full sets, partial sets, or individual bones to add to your collection. The tray is not included. We will be selling trays or specially made baskets in the future.

Natural Ruby Oya’s Mirror
In Sheloya’s Hoodoo bones, Oya’s Mirror tells you whether the reading is talking about the past and present, or the future. The glass version that comes with the sets works well, but some people prefer the additional vibrational sensitivity of a natural stone, specifically ruby. Ruby is an emotional purifier and is better than glass at filtering out delusion and self interest that the querant or the reader may project onto the bones that may inhibit the Ase of the bones. It basically clears the air around the bones so that the Orishas and natural forces have a free hand to turn and nudge things where they will. If you do a lot of readings or do readings in public or a busy area, this will be very helpful in increasing the accuracy of your readings.
They are made with an at least 2 carat ruby cabochon or rough acquired from private family mines and people who find them incidentally or during tours of mines, to avoid negative energy or contributing to de facto slavery.

Blood Obsidian Oya’s Mirror
If you have come to this page because you know someone who has one that looks a bit different, this is the explanation. Every once in awhile, I come across a good piece of red Mt. Saint Helens or African red obsidian. This is the best material as it is touched by Aganju, the Orisha of volcanoes and the unknown wilderness. Having a piece of this in one’s bone collection helps when asking questions specifically about travelling, exploration, and journeys into literal wilderness. When I get some pieces that are good to make Oya’s mirrors out of, I send them to certain people who have ordered sets before as bonus items. I don’t sell them because this is a rare material in the form that is needed for Oya’s mirror, so it’s impossible to put a price on it. So as the Orishas bless me, I give to my customers.
When you receive and begin using your bones, please write comments to let us know how you like them. Thank you and Ase!
