Fairy Stone - a captivating natural sculpture that has a remarkable origin story. Composed primarily of calcium carbonate, the Fairy Stone is a product of argillaceous sand mixed with limestone cement, shaped into unique and intricate forms in the permeable layers of the Harricana River basin in Canada.
This basin was formed by receding glaciers where water, heavily laden with carbon dioxide, coursed through the rocks and gradually broke down the limestone they contained. Through a complex process involving varying pressures and temperatures, the residual lime deposits in the basin's lakes transformed into the Fairy Stones - breathtaking examples of abstract natural art - which were later deposited on the shores of rivers and lakes.
These magical stones have a rich history in Native American Algonquin legend. Believed to bring health and prosperity, protect against evil spirits, and bestow good fortune upon hunters and fishermen, Fairy Stones were often given as cherished gifts between lovers and adorned the homes of their owners, with the grandest specimens occupying a place of honor.
This listing is for one natural Fairy Stone, it will be similar to the photos but note that nature is amazing in all its complexity and uniqueness and as such, each crystal will differ slightly. All crystals have been hand-selected for quality and aesthetics so you can rest assured that you will receive a beautiful piece.
