Flint hagstone ('holey' stone) with Algiz rune
Natural, sea-tumbled Flint hagstone, strung through its natural hole with coarse jute ribbon, combined with an aged beech wood slice carrying a burnt mark of the Norse rune Algiz symbolising protection and sacred space. Whilst this hagstone is strung through one of its naturally occurring holes, there are also two further holes, although one of them is blocked by tiny pebbles firmly lodged in, remnant of this stone's sea-tumbling years.
In the olden days, hagstones (rocks with natural holes in them) were used as charms for all sort of purposes - mainly for protection and good luck. According to legends, hagstones have special powers in protecting their owners, and it is even said you might see fairies if looking through its natural hole. In witch lore, hagstones with three holes were particularly useful for spellcraft. You can dedicate this stone to your chosen purpose.
The Flint is approx. 5 cm (2") in its longest dimension and the jute ribbon loop is approx. 19 cm (7.5").
You'll receive this natural treasure in a small linen drawstring pouch and gift-wrapped at no extra charge.
