Although called “Bluestone,” Preseli spotted dolerite is actually dark forest green, spotted and flecked with shimmery white stars against the dark green sky. Found only in Preseli Hills in Pembrokeshire, Wales, this is the stone that comprised the oldest ring of monoliths erected at Stonehenge (estimated 2900 BC). These tumbles were *not* taken from Stonehenge, which is protected, but rather mined from where the stones were thought to have originated (you can see a bit of the quarry in the last photo).
As you may know, archaeologists, scholars, historians, and mystics the world over have postulated how these massive bluestones were moved from their original location to the area where they stand now at Stonehenge. Myth and lore says that Merlin moved these stones using magic, and even today, local folklore says the stones have immense healing properties that seep into the water when submerged in a bath. Legend aside, Preseli Bluestones have the magical quality of being “lithophones” – or musical stones – creating a gong-like ring when struck, rather than the thud of rock-on-rock.
At first glance, this stone appears like gravel or granite. But after just a few minutes in the hand, it’s energetically quite clear that this stone is much, much more. Crystal Healers in the metaphysical realm have connected this stone to the Root and especially Heart chakras, a tie anchoring us to a mystical, magical, ancient past – a lifeline to our planet’s energy pathways. At the same time, resonating deeply with the electrical impulses of the heart. Metaphysically, it is believed to connect with the magic of Merlin, and undeniably, the mystery of how these enormous stones were moved so far to now stand where they remain at Stonehenge.
Crystal Healers often say that a stone presents itself when we’re ready to work with it. Whether that be to each of us individually, such as when a crystal is found or gifted, or collectively, such as when a new stone is discovered, it is believed that all crystals come when the time is right. As this is a very newly discovered stone, many believe that it is here for us right when we need it; healing old wounds, moving forward from the past, working with our ancestors and healing our old patterns down to our bones.

***PLEASE READ: This is a “group listing” and individual photos/selection of stones is not available for this listing. Please read descriptions and measurements carefully before ordering. Each and every tumble is painstakingly measured to be as close to the measurements given as possible! PLEASE allow for slight variations in each individual tumbled stone as these are natural items, created by the earth and tumbled smooth – and finally, understand that they are organic items and shapes may vary!
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered the elements and more for untold number of years, and I cannot guarantee perfection or perfect points. These are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered.
