I found a hag stone the other day and am planning on stringing it as an amulet. My research indicates such amulets were in use over much of Europe, particularly Western Europe, as well as Egypt and Russia (not really sure if Russia is considered Europe or Asia).
That being said, were they ever engraved with symbols meant to enhance their perceived power? Despite reading that they’re common archaeological finds, I’m having difficulty finding ancient examples amongst all the contemporary ones.
I don’t want to carve the stone with Celtic, Nordic, etc symbols if those cultures only wore them plain. Ruins the point of potentially using this in reenactment costumes one day. Any information would be wonderful, thanks!
