A bezoar is a mass found trapped in the gastrointestinal system,generally of goats though it can occur in other locations and species. A pseudobezoar is an indigestible object introduced intentionally into the digestive system These stones were used in jewellery such as rings and used as amulets being famed for their universal healing properties.

You know it's funny I suppose but over the years I've know them as gut stones, gizzard or belly stones, grinding stones and other things but never really heard them called Bezoar Stones till I read Harry Potter. It wasn't until I read those books and heard the term there that I actually encountered the term and looked it up and said "Hey that's what those are!"

Heck for a while in the back of my mind had a loose fantasy idea of them being dragon stones from the cartoon movie FLIGHT OF DRAGONS (1979) and the implied book The Flight of Dragons as it was inspired by the book The Dragon and the George by Gordon Dickson. One of those fun fantasy idea's.

I first came across bezoar stones at http://www.indotalisman.com/.

...speaking of geocities sites.

I wouldn't take anything said there too seriously, but it can be entertaining.

I'm not sure, but I thought "serpents' eggs" referred to Oak galls.

The Serpent/Snake is a Primordial Entity. Whether it is the beginning of Time, or beyond. It is always present. But not everyone can see it, or be aware of the things that make it evident. Even now, there are invisible Snakes in the air, all about. Even though in some fields it has been reduced to the mundane. It is what it is. I believe that the Snake wrapped on the Sphere of Ra is a riddle. It is the Sun, and the way it's energy propagates. In waves, like slithering Snakes about the Earth.

The Serpent or Adder Stone I think you refer to was mentioned by Pliny in his Nat.History.It features in Celtic mythology and is claimed to have magical propertires similar to the Bezoar.They were also referred to as Druids Eggs.
