This stone is found in the head, neck or stomach of an eagle. Worn as a talisman, it brings courage, good fortune and health, and longevity. If a pregnant woman wears it on the wrist of her left arm, or on her little finger, it will make the baby strong and prevent abortion or miscarriage. Also called Aquilaeus.
