This stone is from the same prehistoric quarry where the oldest monoliths at Stonehenge were sourced. It is a bluestone called Preseli Spotted Dolerite after the Preseli Hills of Wales where the stones were quarried, and where we recovered these fragments.

Recent petrographic studies of chippings from this quarry have confirmed that they are identical to the bluestones installed at Stonehenge. Meaning the massive stones were hauled 150 miles (250 km) from the quarry to the site of Stonehenge around 3100 BC. 

This type of stone was likely used at Stonehenge because it was believed to have healing properties. We now know this isn’t true.

IT ROCKS

Awful pun aside, it’s been cool having this piece in my collection. Although this isn’t a piece of stone from Stonehenge itself, (just the same quarry that the stones were sourced from) my girlfriend and I have loved looking at it and imagining the same kind of stone being used thousands of years ago to build a monument. The name “bluestone” is apt - when held in the sunlight it’s easy to see how it got its name.

I’m glad to know places like Stemcell exist, places where someone can pick up objects that make them reflect on the natural world.
