Term Definition
Eagle Stone

An Eagle Stone (or Aeotoi Stone from the Greek for \eagle\") is also known as an Aetite.  An Eagle Stone is any stone that contains within itself another stone or particle, formaing a natural rattle.  The most common example is a \"thunderegg\" or geode.  However, nodules of clay ironstone, about the size of a walnut, are other frequent examples.

Because they are \"stones\" that contain another stone, they are often associated with childbirth and are said to prevent miscarriage.  Dioscorides recommends its use for this as well as for catching theives and treating epilepsy.

Here at PaganPath, we have come across many natural rattles, most of which could be regarded as Eagle Stones.  Their properties depend upon the materials from which they are composed.  For example an amethyst geode sphere with a loose point inside that rattles will have the energy of amethyst as well as the Eagle Stone attributes.

Childbirth is only one correspondence for these natural rattles and modern Pagans use them for birthing any new ideas, creativity, and associations with eagles such as messengers, alertness and power."
