While relic hunting in the mud of Algiers Point, a 52-year-old relic hunter found an eerie glass bottle filled with human hair, a tooth, a pincher beetle, and possibly urine. According to his facebook post, There used to be a home in the mid-1800s and such object may have been used as a protection spell for the property. Or it could have been used in voodoo to curse someone. Either way, it is a rare, creepy-cool find for him.
He isn't currently sure what he's going to do with the bottle, but is considering donating it to a museum, reports nola.com
Experts from New Orleans Pharmacy Museum and the Historic New Orleans Collection museum have shown interest in the discovery, though both claimed they had never heard of witch bottles before.
