The pentacle, the five pointed star in a circle, is a popular symbol used in witchcraft for summoning and banishing and is sometimes employed in protection work.  The points of the star are symbolic of the elements earth, air, fire, water, and spirit though the pentacle is often used on an altar to represent the element of earth.  The word pentacle is often used to refer to a physical item such as a piece of jewelry or is made of paper, metal, or wood.  A pentagram denotes the star without the circle.

The chalice or cup is one of the four elemental tools of witchcraft.  It is used to represent the feminine, mercurial principle of water and the womb of the Goddess.  The vessel is often filled with wine, but this is not a hard rule and many witches use water or juice during ritual.  The cup (representing the Goddess and feminine energy), along with the athame or ritual blade (representing the God or masculine energy), are used together to perform the Great Rite (in token ;p) .  The Rite is a symbolic reenactment of the union between those forces to honor and manifest creation.
