Preseli Bluestone is the same stone that the ancient stone monoliths at Stonehenge are made from. This is a powerful variety of stone that has a number of excellent attributes.
These crystals are strong aids to enhance your spirituality, as they connect you to the mystical energy of Merlin and his magic.

The natural rough pieces can be a more blue grey color, with the tumbled or polished pieces being a green color.
As mentioned above, this crystal is made from the same type of material that the amazing Stonehenge stone circle is made from.
This is a well known sacred circle, located in the UK, in the Wiltshire countryside, made up of nineteen large pieces of Preseli Dolerite stone.
The meaning of their name relates to the area where the stone originates, as they come from the Preseli mountains in Wales, so they are also called Preseli Dolerite and are known as Bluestone Rock.
The name is sometimes a bit confusing because this crystal is not always very blue, and quite a bit of the polished stone looks more green or greenish-grey in color.
Also known as Stonehenge Bluestone, most stones have inclusions of white minerals, such as quartz or white chalk in them.
A number of these English heritage stones have a mottled appearance, some have yellow inclusions, and most contain tiny flecks of white chalk or white quartz within them.
