Hag stones are stones with holes in them that can be found along the seashore.
They are believed to hold magical properties and ward off evil spirits and witches.
According to folklore, only good things can pass through the hole. When you look through the hole in the hag stone, only good fortune and good wishes can be found. Bad luck and evil thoughts are believed to be too big to pass through the hole. This is because the hole in the hag stone was created by moving water, and the water poses as a protective shield against spells.
If you are ever walking along the seashore, keep your eye out for a hag stone. The stones are believed to find you, so only take one for yourself.
Some ways you can carry this good luck charm include attaching it to your keychain, wearing it as a necklace, or hanging it above a door or window.
