Cast iron nails that rust are considered powerful, as iron is the metal associated with Mars, the God of war.
In ancient times witch bottles were made of stone and originally contained rusty nails, amongst other little objects.
A witch bottle is an item believed to protect against witchcraft: hey are described in historical sources in England and the United States. The earliest surviving mention of a witch bottle is from 17th century England.
Folk magic contends that witch bottles protect against evil spirits and magical attack, and counteract spells cast by witches; they are counter-magical devices, the purpose of which is to draw in and trap harmful intentions directed at their owners.
“Insects from beneath a rock, needles, nails rusting fast, keep all harm inside and locked, within this dungeon made of glass.”
