"HagStones" by Melusine Draco (ARCANUM)

"Much of the information that has been collected for Hagstones is of a repetitive nature but this is, in itself, an endorsement of the strong beliefs that were still prevalent in the early part of the 20th-century, up and down the country. In fact, the sheer oddity of hag-stones has long made them a focus of folk magic — where they’ve been used for everything from wishing spells to hedge-riding and protection — and serious academic study. The names for these perforated rocks vary by region, but hag-stones have been viewed as magical across the world and, are also said to be bringers of high psychic powers and heightened intuition."
