Holey stones have many names including lucky stones, witch stones, fairy stones, hag stones and here in the North East of England they are sometimes called Adder Stones.

I can't help it! Another rock comes home with me. A smooth and tactile piece of Frosterley Marble from the beautiful Northumberland Coast of North East England.
Frosterley Marble is a black limestone containing fossil corals of the Carboniferous Period, some 325 million years ago.
Beach finds this morning include, a whole razor clam shell, sea glass bottle bottom, beach pottery and a starfish. The bottle bottom has the initials JC in raised lettering, so off to do some research to find out a bit more about it.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Beach finds this morning. Not much sea glass, but quite an interesting assortment of objects, shells, beach pottery, pebbles and one holey stone.
Bonfire glass is molten, free-form glass shards that often have specks of ash or sand embedded in it. Beach bonfires, building fires and controlled landfill burns may all produce bonfire glass.
I found this excellent piece of jade green bonfire glass on Warkworth Beach.
