Naturally occurring objects that are said to be empowered with magical properties manifest themselves in water as well as they do in the other elements. A sand dollar, for instance, is a potent a natural charm as a four-leaf clover. Here is a list of the magickal attributes some common and naturally occurring objects, brought by water:
Coral: The name coral has its roots in the Greek language. It translates literally to "daughter of the sea." An extremely protective talisman, coral has been accredited with driving away nightmares, harmful spirits, ghosts, theft, accidents, sterility, and violence. It is also credited with regulating menstruation.
Holey stones: Waves, sea creatures, and wind have been known to erode stone surfaces in such a way that a natural hole is created in the stone. These "holey stones" are very powerful in matters of protection. They are also said to be useful in healing rituals, as they absorb sickness and disease. An old wives' tale relates that looking through a holey stone will improve one's eyesight.
Mother-of-pearl: Mother-of-pearl is said to attract money as well as to protect. It is frequently used in ritual jewelry and placed on altars as a representative of water.
Pearls: Pearls have been thought for eons to be the tears of the Goddess. They are useful for attracting love and protection and improving one's luck.
Sand Dollars: The sand dollar is a potent natural good luck charm. A sand dollar is the skeleton of tiny sea creatures with the imprint of the five-pointed star upon them. In spell work, they are useful in matters involving protection, wisdom, and luck. The sand dollar can also be used as a representation of the pentacle on your altar.
Seaweed: The lore of seaweed was plentiful among the sailors of old. Seaweed was said to foretell the weather, promote friendships, and protect against fire or evil spirits. To divine the weather, keep a piece of seaweed beside the front door. If it shrivels, there will be warm weather. If it becomes moist, it will rain. To harness the friendship and protective aspects of seaweed, you only need to carry it. Burning seaweed produces a rich fertilizer that has been used in farming for centuries.

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.
