This is a hag stone. Known by many names, such as witch stone, adder stone and Glain Neidr, hag stones were prized in many cultures. The hole is created naturally through the process of weathering in flowing water. Because it was believed that magic could not take place in water, hag stones were seen to have protective qualities. Looking through the hole was said to help you see through glamour, or even to see faeries.

Supanova Melbourne has been and gone for another year. I had such a fantastic time meeting readers and having all sorts of interesting conversations. Thank you to everyone who stopped for a chat and bought my books. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them.
Don't forget to pop by and say hello to me on Insta or TikTok (@AshOldfieldAuthor on both). I'm fairly active on my socials and try to respond to bookish questions quickly.
Next year's Supanova cannot come fast enough!
