★ Metaphysical Properties and Mystic Lore: Harricana, or Fairy Stones, are gorgeous naturally smoothed stones composed of Calcium Carbonate and were formed in quaternary deposits left in lakes by receding glaciers, specific to Northern Quebec. These concretions only form when the conditions are just right – when the water is too high they don’t form and when the water is too low they don’t form – only when the Fairies keep the water at a certain ‘dancing’ level do these stones form beautiful sculptures. The irregular lines on certain stones are traces left by miniature worms, or organic remains, which were fossilized thousands of years ago. They reveal themselves as textured etchings on an otherwise smooth surface. The Algonquins often carried these treasures as luck charms when they went on fishing or hunting expeditions. The biggest specimens occupied a place of honor in their homes. According to legend, these stones assured protection against bad spirits and brought good health and prosperity to the occupants of the premises. Molded by nature, each stone is one of a kind, making them unique personalities and collection pieces. The Harricana river is named after these stones which resemble biscuits, as in Algonquin ‘Harricana’ means ‘River of the biscuits.’ These stones have a strong link to the nurturing energies of the Earth Mother, they teach care and concern for the planet and all those upon it, and will assist you with any Earth-related work you undertake, as well as grounding, healing and manifesting Earthly abundance.

Harricana Fairy Stones are different than Fairy Crosses, which are Staurolite.
