The Holey Stone
(aka Faerie Stone, Odin Stone)
a Stone with at least one naturally eroded hole going all the way through it
Okay, so... How did the hole get there?
That was the Dollmaker's first question.
Was it an ancient worm?
Tunneling through the mud creating long hollow tubular shaped burrows-
Maybe these stones are cross-sections of worm tunnels!
hmmm... or....maybe not....
...eons of rolling... pushed around by glaciers and rivers....
A lot can happen when stones roll!
Maybe the holes were caused by pebbles lodged in the stone,
and the pebbles popped out!
Or maybe there were softer areas within the stone
which wore away quicker, leaving a hole.
The Faeries did it!
Folks DO call them "Faerie Stones", after all...
Under the Spell of the Fey
Traditional Uses for Holey Stones
Looking through the Hole of a Holey Stone
is said to grant hapless Humans the Power of Second Sight!
That they might SEE (and be seen by) the Fey!
It was after collecting hundreds of Holey Stones
from local (Texas) riverbeds and beaches, over a period of years,
and having curiously peered through each and every one of their Holes...
that the Dollmaker became enslaved by Faerie Magic, without even realizing it,
while following a seemingly natural compulsion to create (around 8000) DOLLS...
Holey Stones are "Gateways" to new Behaviors!

Ah yes, my friends, never underestimate the lowly holey stone...
Amazing Amulets: Nature's Gifts
The following is probably the most common definition for the word amulet:
An amulet is a natural object used as a charm.
Amulets may include:
stones, crystals, fossils, bird feathers found on the ground or in trees,
four-leaf clovers, pieces of wood, nuts, shells
(especially cowrie shells), dried flowers or other herbs, and seeds.
A good example of an amulet is a holey stone. These have long been carried
and worn as charms.
The holes are considered doorways or portals through which someone can draw or repel energy. For example, the holey stone can bring luck or send away misfortune, bring wealth or banish deprivation, and so on.
Many cultures use holey stones for divination. (knowing the future)
To divine with a holey stone, the holder of the stone peers at the MOON through the hole to see visions and gain wisdom.
Holey Stones are also used for meditation and creative visualization.
Some fossils, such as this ammonite (ancient squid) also have natural holes in them and are said to assume the same magical qualities as a holey stone.

one mustn't be surprised to behold visions
of non-corporeal entities!
