The runic alphabets are called “futharks” after the first six runes (Fehu, Uruz, Thurisaz, Ansuz, Raidho, Kaunan), in much the same way that the word “alphabet” comes from the names of the first two Semitic letters (Aleph, Beth).There are three principal futharks: the 24-character Elder Futhark, the first fully-formed runic alphabet, whose development had begun by the first century CE and had been completed before the year 400; the 16-character Younger Futhark, which began to diverge from the Elder Futhark around the beginning of the Viking Age (c. 750 CE).
This is a full set of the 25 Elder Futhark Runes made from wood with a black coating (24 runes and 1 blank). The set comes in a decorative black velvet pouch with the Vegvisir symbol on and contained in a black gift box which also features the Vegvisir symbol. On the back of the box you'll find a QR code which takes you to an online book about runes which is very handy in reading the runes should you use them for divination.
