Toad Stone Amulet
The toad stone was a coveted treasure from the Middle Ages to the 18th century. It was thought to be a unique jewel found only in the heads of great toads, and contained powerful healing properties and the ability to remedy all poisons. In reality the smooth stones are the fossilised teeth of an extinct fish species known as Lepidotes.
The silver toned gothic amulet measures two inches in height, and contains one toad stone nestled on red velvet. The other side contains a Medieval woodcut depicting a man removing such a stone from a toad, printed on cotton. The amulet has been strung on a silver plated chain.
