This is a set of 3 very large and heavy hag rocks (sometimes called holey stones) that we found along the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan. They are all similar in size ~ about 4 inches by 3 inches.
They can be used for a variety of projects. We spend hours on the shores of Lake Michigan searching for these hagstones. The rocks you see in the pictures are the exact rocks you will receive. We do not use any chemicals on them. We just dust off the sand and send them on their way!
A hagstone is created when water and other elements pound through a stone, eventually creating a hole at the weakest point on the stone’s surface – this is why hagstones are often found at the beach. They’re fairly hard to find, so if you are lucky enough to have more than one, take advantage of the opportunity.
In some magical cultures, particularly in older traditions of folk magic, you may see references to something called a hagstone. In some areas, they are referred to as a holey stone or an adder stone. In folk magic traditions, the hagstone had a variety of purposes and uses…..especially healing and protection. They were thought to absorb disease, assist in healing and maintain health. They were considered a form of protection when someone would wear them around their neck. That’s why it’s still not uncommon to see people wearing a hagstone on a cord around their neck.
They were often used as protection by hanging them on a front door or bedpost to prevent nightmares. So nowadays they are often tied to anything you want to have protected - your boat, your car, your house or even your cow. It’s believed that tying multiple hagstones together has a great magical boost.
Legend says some cultures believed that if you held a hagstone up to your eye and looked through it, you could see things you could not normally see.
