Apatite is a cerebral, otherworldly stone, but it is not a stone of illusion. It is very clear minded, and Freethinker would be a wand for a clear minded person, or someone who seeks mental and intellectual clarity. Cherry Laurel wood gives both wild nature and fruit-giving qualities to this wand. Heavy gauge Copper wire makes this smaller scale wand up for travel, outdoor work and introspection. When I trace a circle with this wand it seems to open up portals for astral travel or space exploration, but it would not be a good choice for group rituals or casting circle. (Unless all parties are voluntarily stepping into Astral together.) Bon Voyage!
