In cultures with deep roots to the past, from many lands around the globe, small rocks with holes in the middle are considered the most sublime of all amulets. An amulet is worn on the body, not as jewelry or decoration, but because it carries a spiritual force that boosts or supports the soul of the wearer. And the chemical or mineral composition of the stone does not matter. As an amulet, the little holey rock is treated with utmost care. So it is most often wrapped in red cloth, carried in a medicine pouch and kept together with other sanctified objects that are part and parcel to working with spiritual power. The bearer recognizes that the spirits enlivening the stone are to be revered at all times. Unfortunately if modern spiritual practitioners come across such a treasure, they seldom know what they hold in a holy-holey rock, and how to keep its ‘charm’ so the spiritual essence remains intact.
