Nature’s gifts – amulets.
An amulet is a natural object used as a charm.
Amulets may include: fossils, stones, crystals, pieces of wood, feathers, four leaved clovers, flowers, nuts and seeds.
One example of an amulet is a holey stone. These have long been carried and worn as charms.
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.
