Monday Musings #7 - What Is a Fairy Stone?

The fairy stone eluded me for many years, but this holiday season I finally found one! I contribute my luck to the offering of blessed tobacco at the beach. Immediately after, my fairy stone appeared!

Okay, so what is a fairy stone besides a really cool rock with a hole in it?

The name says it all. The larger stones are portals to the realm of the Fae. Any size brings you good luck and wards you from evil, since they're shaped like an eye. Some believe if you look through the hole, you can actually see fairies. The holes in the rocks form naturally over time from running water passing over the stone. And the fairy stone is a totally cool story writing prompt!

Here are some links for further reading and pics:

Hey, I found one of those on an island near my parents' house when I was a kid! I never knew it was a fairy stone. I may still have it somewhere...
