Collection: Hag Stone

A Hag Stone is a rare and extremely magical stone tumbled by tides and winds through time with a natural hole in it. The reason they are so sought after and valuable is because it’s common belief that magick cannot work on moving water, and since the holes in hag stones are made by the force of this element (water), that the stones retain water’s beneficial influence. In effect, a hag stone is an amazing protection amulet, and so much more.

For Protection & Ward Off Curses: The name “hag stone” originates in part from ancient beliefs that most maladies, which were curable by using this stone, were caused originally by spectral hags. Other areas call them adder stones because they are believed to protect the wearer from the effects of snake bite. Germanic legend says that adder stones are formed when serpents gather together and use their venom to create the holes in the center of the stones. Hag stones are said to have many uses. They have been used by witches worldwide for in both rituals and spell work. They also have been used, ironically, as a toll to counteract a witch’s magick. Legend has it that they can be used to ward off the dead, curses, sickness and nightmares.

Fairy Stones: Hag stones are called fairy stones because of their power to aid the user in “seeing.” If you close one eye and peer through the hole in a fairy stone with the other, you’ll be able to see into the Kingdom of the Fae. You’ll be able to see elementals and other beings from the Fae world. There are some practitioners of Italian folk magic who also believe that fairy stones can be used to see and ultimately bind a faery to their service for a specific length of time; a dangerous practice for sure. If you have a fairy stone, wear it around your neck when you’re out in nature looking for fairies. To “fine tune” your faery attraction skills, gather morning dew in a container and gently pour it through the hole in your fairy stone before anointing yourself. If the fairy stone was found in the ocean, looking at the water through the hole may help you discover Sea Spirits, Mermaids and Mermen. If your fairy stone was found in a forest, it can help you connect with Tree Spirits. A charm of a hag stone suspended on a red cord is especially useful at Samhain, when the veil between this world and the fairy world thins. (Credit The Gypsy Thread)
