Fairy Stones (sometimes called “Loess Children”) carry nature spirit energy and are excellent for grounding. The name was given to them by the Algonquin, who carried or placed them in the home for good luck and success in hunting for food.
According to legend, these special stones provided protection against evil spirits. They also brought good health and prosperity to those in the home.
Fairy Stones are a type of Loess, a type of rock finely ground by glaciers and blown away by winds to form soil-like deposits. Groundwater moving through the soils dissolves calcium and other minerals, and the grounds are redeposited to form unique concretion formations. This stone can be found in Canada.
This stone is associated with the root chakra.
You can place this stone in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth overnight.
This stone is associated with Taurus.
Fairy Stone is thought to be beneficial for the nervous system. It can also help soothe stress and nerves.
