Origin[edit | edit source]

Bla Jungrun translated to The Blue Maiden is a Swedish island in the Baltic Sea. The island consists partly of bare rock with the remainder covered in dense hardwood forest and several caves. Most notably there is an ancient stone labyrinth from which it is forbidden to remove stones. It is forbidden because in Swedish folklore it is viewed as an evil and magical place where witches and evil spirits live. In reality it is due to the label of national park status which makes it illegal. The closest town is Oskarshamn where the residents receive stones from former visitors, often describing the misfortunes and disasters which happened to the letter writer after removing them. The stone and sand was discovered in a collection given to the museum in Uppsala by King Gustav IV Adolf, the grandson of Carl Linnaeus an explorer who adamantly disbelieved the curse.

Effects[edit | edit source]

When held, the possessor will have bad luck, needs to be kept covered in sand. If set on the ground without the sand a labyrinth of stones will form a basic shape, if not covered within twenty minutes the stones turn to walls trapping the person within.
