I have a canine tooth in both my sets. They are naturally colored on the tooth end and darkened on the root end. I originally had a dog bone in my sets, but when I got the teeth I replaced the dog bones because I felt using a tooth gave me a wider choice of meanings. I interpreted the dog bone as the good qualities of dogs – faithful, loyal, protective, companions. The bi-colored tooth gave me the option of adding a more negative interpretation. So the tooth could be the faithful, protective, loyal companion, or it could be the snarling, growling, biting, attacking dog.
The dark end seems to come up in readings more often than the lighter end. I find that when the dark side is prominent in relationship questions it can indicate arguments, disagreements, or tension in the relationship. Almost all relationships will experience these things, but when this side of the tooth is in a prominent position, the fighting could be becoming more frequent or more of a problem. It can also represent anger on the part of the client and a need or desire to fight for oneself. Conversely, if the light side is prominent, the person is probably loyal, faithful, and protective.
I got the teeth I use at a gem show, but you can find teeth from canines on Ebay or Etsy.
Happy Bone Reading!
P.S. I will be a guest on Candelo’s Corner Monday the 24th of October. I would love to see you in the chat-room.
