The Key Stone
The infamous hag stone has occupied myth and “magick” for centuries. Used by farmers, people seeking protection and “magical” minded people, Hag stones are stones that have a naturally occurring hole inside them. Often discovered in fields or along coastal beaches, lakes or streams. These holes occur from the elements beating down upon them over many years. These stones were believed to be able to protect cattle, their milk and people from witches.
This necklace is apart of my Hag Stone Collection. Each stone in the collection was found in a different part of the world. I have embellished most stones with a coordinating trinket, which further enriches its metaphysical properties!
Hag stones represent a magical time when these rocks where used for protection, fertility, good luck and safety. Each necklace is made with a self adjusting leather strap, that go over your neck and allow you to alter their length. Each necklace comes with an information pamphlet about the stone’s metaphysical properties, how to work with it, wear it, clean it and care for it. In addition, the necklace is accompanied by a FREE color coordinated bag for storage.
The Key Stone
* This is an extra smooth hag stone, tied with a leather adjustable necklace with traditional Celtic knots. It was found along the Alderley Edge, in Northwest England. Alderley Edge is renowned for its natural springs, but the most famous is the Wizard’s Well – the wizard, most probably being Merlin of the Arthurian legends. The use of the spring dates back to Pre-Roman times and is believed to have healing properties.
* The key is an object symbolic of opening and closing powers. It represents knowledge, mystery, initiation, and curiosity.
* This wonderful hag stone measures approximately 1 1/4 inches long and the key measures 3/4″ of an inch.
