This mineral formation goes by many names: Fairy Stone, Goddess Stone, Mud Baby, Clay Dogs, Imatra Stone, and Fertility Stone! These unique specimens were formed thousands of years ago by fine sand, clay and calcite. They were originally found in Canada on the bottom of the Great Lakes and formed while the glaciers were receding - it's said the fairies kept the water at a "dancing" level which formed these beautiful sculptures.
Fairy Stones considered a good luck charm resonating with the vibrations of prosperity and nurturing feelings of love! They are known to protect against evil spirits and also make excellent worry stones. Said to be “little helpers,” they adopt people rather than the other way around! Fairy Stones resonate with the nurturing energies of Mother Earth, and they remind you to respect and give gratitude to nature.
Fairy stones are special formations that are found in the Harricana River in the Quebec region of Canada. The flat stones are round in shape and have special and unique patterns. They have been formed over thousands of years by the deposit of calcium carbonate on small pebbles and fossils.
Bringer of Fortune
The Indians have called these stones "Fairy Stones" for hundreds of years and wore them as a bringer of fortune when hunting or fishing. They believed that wearing a fairy stone would protect them from bad spirits and bring them good health and prosperity.
River of cookies
According to geologists, fairy stones have formed under a glacier that retreated thousands of years ago. The stones were then taken by the water and deposited along the banks of lakes and rivers. One of the most important rivers where fairy stones are found is the Harricana River. This is the second longest river in Canada. It is said that the name 'Harricana' comes from the word 'Nanikana' which means 'the river of cookies', referring to the fairy stones.
