Hag stones

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.

I don't think I need to remind you all how much I love being in research mode for my writing 🥰
