I'm very nervous about getting lodestones wet all over. Potable liquor contains water -- the strongest that's commonly available is only about 50% alcohol, so there is still the potential for rust.
I'd just sprinkle the lodestone with whisky.
And, just to reassure you, whisky is the go-to spirituous liquor in hoodoo, which developed in places where rum wasn't widely available until recently. Rum comes from the Caribbean, so it is the go-to liquor and spirituous drink offering for the people who live there.
The next morning, let the stone dry off, and name it using an anointing oil
I don't have lodestone oil. I think I have crown of success, but not sure if that will work. I think I also have steady work oil, not sure if that will work in this case. I have a general blessing oil as well.
Those are all good choices. Feed it with magnetic sand, too.
Best of luck,
