I saw an advertisement for Vatican Stone and eagerly bought some for the first time. I was surprised when I unpacked the bag to see that they were actually fossil tumbles. They are from the ammonite marine animal family. The name is a metaphysical name as they come from the same rock quarry that built the Vatican. They are geologically called Frosterley Marble, it is mined in County Durham, UK. It is a black limestone from the fossilised remains of Stags Horn Coral. Time calculated as 325 million years old.
This crystal’s healing properties are a strong energy because of the black coloured limestone. The black and white makes for a stone that balances and brings a sense of inner peace. Read the Healing Tab for other properties.
I imagine we will sell as lot of these Vatican stone tumbles to our fossil collectors. There are not many fossils that can be carried in their pockets! Dimensions are for the $31 budget.
