Holey Stone ~ Hag Stone, Odin Stone
Holey stones, also known as Hag Stones, Faerie Stones, Odin Stones and Witch's Amulets, are stones with a naturally created hole in them. Most holey stones are created by water eroding weakened spots on the stone until a hole occurs, though many are created by wind, erosion, and weathering alone. Because these stones take a very long time to be created, it is believed they carry with them the wisdom of ages of ancestors before us.
Holey stones are very powerful stones, magickally speaking. They are used as the ultimate protection stone, generally worn by witches around the neck to ward off evil spirits, sickness, negative energy, curses, and nightmares. They can also be hung above doorways or windows (by a black ribbon for the most impact) in the home for protection, or hung over your familiar's favorite sleeping spot to protect your pet. To help prevent nightmares, and protect those while sleeping, hang a Holey Stone by a red ribbon over or near the bed to act as a shield.
One of the most interesting aspects of the Holey Stone is the belief that the hole in the stone is actually a window into other realms or dimensions. It is believed that looking through the hole allows the viewer to see into the Faerie Realm, or to see spirits, beings and creatures not generally visible by the naked eye in this realm. In Italian folklore, it is believed that these stones have the power to communicate with the Fae to ask for their help for a short period of time.
Holey Stones are most powerful during Full Moons, and at Samhain, when the veil between the worlds is the thinnest.
These Holey Stones originally come from Israel, a place of great spiritual energy for many people. Each listing is for 1 stone, chosen by me at the time of order. I will choose a stone that I feel resonates with the buyer, and the stone could be one pictured above, but may not be, so please keep that in mind. The pictures above show the average size of the stones, which ranges from 1" in diameter to approximately 1.75" in diameter.

This stone and I get along great so far, and I don't know how to say "it works as advertised" without being weird so...yeah. It makes things easier on that front. I'm so glad I got over my "you have to FIND your Odin stone, no purchasing or gifts" hangup and gave this a try. I got a nice piece with two holes through it, which is great because I can thread a string through it for easy wear without obstructing my view.
This really is a holy stone very unique.
I am very happy with this stone. It is small in size, so it's subtle enough to hang on a string to align with the room's energies.
They are perfect. I keep them with me everyday.
I got this as a present for a friend and it’s perfect! A little smaller than I thought but that isn’t a bad thing!! She loves it and it’s perfect pocket size.
The hag stone was the perfect size I wear it everyday!
