I found one vendor out of all of the gem & mineral trade shows Tucson that had lots of these Fairy stones and I picked through thousands to get only the best quality with the most dramatic forms. Then I drilled them so that they can be worn as a lucky charm pendant. Color may darken up from your body oils as you handle it. This is natural stone formation, a calcium carbonate concretion, found in the Harricana River in Quebec, Canada. Some of the native Algonquin people of the area and many others believe that these stones protect against bad spirits and bring good health and prosperity. Geologically they are very young and formed in the Quaternary period within the last 2.5 million years. Little lines and squiggles on the back are thought to be the fossil remains of the roots of a shallow swamp plant around which these concretions originally formed, showing the interconnection between living things and rocks. They have a strong connection to the healing energies of the planet. CHAIN NOT INCLUDED.
