More About the Symbol of the Pentacle / Pentagram
The pentagram was considered by the ancient Greeks and medieval astrologers to have supernatural properties and to be a protective symbol. Often in the past people would mark their doors with pentagrams to ward off evil witchcraft and spirits. 

In good magic today (with the top pointed upwards) it is often used as a symbol to support transmission and communication with the spirit world. Its five points are often seen to represent the four classic elements of earth, water, air and fire joining with the fifth element of spirit to create life. A five-pointed star (pentagram) with a circle around it is referred to as a pentacle. This circle represents sacred space in which the fifth element of spirit controls the four earthly elements.

Also in the legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight a pentacle adorns his shield representing the five knightly virtues of generosity, courtesy, chastity, brotherly love and piety.

    Great value for money

    Posted by L Leaper on 4th Aug 2010

    This carved mini incense box is perfect for cone burning. The small brass inlay is of pentacle design and adds to the pleasing aspect of this neatly carved box. This box is specifically made for cones with a circular inset made of brass to hold the incense.
    In use this little box allows free flowing air to facilitate burning and good smoke distribution. Similar to the larger boxes made for burning sticks there are brass hinge inserts and a nicely finished wood surface. This product is great value for money and a pleasure to use.
