This stone is not actually a crystal or a type of jasper, it is instead a fossil created by a blue, green algae. It is one of the oldest fossils we have record of dating back 3 billion years. Because of its earthy properties and old age, it is said to hold wise earth energy and to bring stability and help us build strong foundations in our times of need. It is a powerful meditation aid helping us to connect to the earth and the natural world around us. It reminds us of our true strength. This beautiful stone has survived billions of years of chaos and change and is stronger for it.
