Chelidonius (swallow stone):
Arabic name is hajar al-khattaf. If it were worn by an epileptic, the attacks of his malady would cease, it favored procreation and also nullified the effects of the Evil Eye and it kept children from having bad dreams if placed beneath their heads when they were sleeping.
Pliny notes the opinion that a stone taken from the body of a young swallow,if worn attached to the human body, helps to strengthen the brain, and he adds that the stone is said to be found in the young bird even when it has just broken the shell. According to Thomas de Cantimpre the swallow stone is a talisman for merchants and tradesmen. The merits of the chelidonius,as this stone was called, were fully recognized in Saxon England and are given due prominence in an Anglo-Saxon medical treatise,dating from the first half of the tenth century. When these "swallow-stones" had been obtained they were to be carefully protected from contact with water, earth, or other stones. To secure the best results three of them were to be applied to the person who stood in need of their remedial effects. Not only did they cure headache and eye-smart, but they banished the dreaded nightmare, rendered futile the wiles of goblin visitors, and dissolved all fascinations and enchantments.
