These Triquetra Charcoal Tongs are a must have when lighting your charcoal disks. Anyone that has used charcoal has probably realized that the disks will not easily light when they are laying flat. The best way to light them is by holding it in the air with a flame on its side until it self ignites. Use these tongs to safely light or adjust your already lit charcoal. They are also great for adding small amounts of loose herbs or resin to a lit charcoal disk. A must have for safe handling of self-igniting charcoal disks in your meditation or cleansing rituals. The Triquetra engraving make these tongs not only wonderfully practical, but add an extra touch of spirituality to your altar or Sacred Space.
