The Legend of Mermaid Tears and Holey Stones........

I came across these cute stories when I was researching about beach glass and holey stones. I thought I'd share it with you, if you haven't heard of them it's an interesting read.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MERMAID STORY:
The maidens could change the mighty course of nature but were forbidden to do so by Neptune, the stern, watchful god of the sea. One dark, storm-ravaged night, with sails ripping and masts cracking, a schooner fought to find safety in Friendly Cove off Nootka Island in the San Juans. The ship was familiar to the mermaid who swam along its side . . . she had weathered many crossings with the ship and its captain. As the ship heeled in the violent wind, the captain lost his hold on the wheel, tumbling perilously close to the raging sea. In an instant, the mermaid calmed the wind and tamed the waves, changing the course of nature and saving the life of a man she had grown to love from afar. For her impetuous act, Neptune banished the sobbing mermaid to the ocean's depths, condemning her for eternity never to surface or swim with the ships again. To this day, her gleaming tears wash up on the beaches as sea glass . . . crystalline treasures in magic sea colors, an eternal reminder of true love.

HOLEY STONES STORY:
Holey stones are known by a variety of names; Holed stone, Odin Stone, Crick Stone, Hag Stone, Fairy Stone, and Witches Amulet. A holed stone, or holey stone, is any rock with a weathered/eroded hole in it which has been created by nature alone. The sculpting powers of wind and water create the opening in a stone over a great amount of time and it is believed to carry the wisdom of the ages, having both healing and magical properties.
Holey stones can be used for protective properties. A good place to use one is hanging one from your rearview mirror, over windows, doors, over beds to protect you from nightmares or any place you feel you need protection from negative forces.
These stones also have healing properties. Holey Stones are helpful for healing disease and maintaining general health, particularly when the stone is rubbed on the body of someone sick. They are also said to improve eyesight. For healing purposes, one should carry the stone with them, or wear it. One can also run a bath, place the stone in the bath, then get in and soak.
Finally, holey stones also aide with psychic sight. If at the seashore, if one looks through the hole, one will see the sea spirits playing on the tide. Or, if one looks through the hole in the light of the full moon, one will see the land of the fae, or one might see spirits or visions.

Hope you enjoyed the Legend of Mermaids and the Holey Rocks stories, our Mermaid tears (beach glass) and Holey Rocks are found on the beautiful beaches of Carmel and Monterey California. My husband, daughter and myself have spent hours combing the beaches to find just the right piece of tumbled beach glass and holey rocks to turn into a treasured piece of jewelry or art.
