     Our family often visited Fairy Stone Park in Virginia during the 1960’s and 1970’s. We gathered numerous authentic Fairy Stones and have added more to these. You can tell they are rough by the pictures. These stones have not been soaked in oil or any other chemicals. They were washed with water. Also, they have not been smoothed or altered. You may wish to file one yourself, carefully following the flat sides forming the cross. Oil often enhances the color, especially if you plan to make jewelry with them.

     We spread them out and divided them into groups of 3, trying to vary each group, especially according to size and roughness. We then wrapped and sealed them in envelopes with 1st class postage. Almost all are the St. Andrews crosses, x-shaped, or partial crosses.

 Authentic natural Fairy Stones, 3 for $10.50 Total. 

In quantities of 10 to 19 these Authentic natural Fairy Stones are $3.20 each.  In quantities of 20 or more these are $2.75 each. (this includes 1 st class postage and handling USA, Tennessee residents add 9.25% sales tax).

THE FAMOUS FAIRY OR LUCKY STONES FOUND IN PATRICK COUNTY, VIRGINIA

GEMS AND PRECIOUS STONES

          May the charms of the Fairy Stone make you blessed

            Through the days of labor and nights of rest

          Where ever you stay, where ever you go.

          May the beautiful Flowers of the good Fairies grow.

     The Staurolites , better known as "Fairy Stones" are found in a field of about 50 acres on top of Bull Mountain, Patrick County. These "Fairy" or "Lucky" stones are twinned staurolite crystals simulating the Roman, Maltese, and St. Andrew’s crosses. They are as much as an inch in length and are of dark brown color. The original staurolite mineral has changed to a compact softer material, so that the stones can readily be prepared for the jewelry trade.

     These stones are much sought after as good luck pieces, charms, lavalieres and natural curiosities.

     Every stone is in some shape of a cross, and millions of people are now wearing them in various forms of jewelry.

     It is well known that President Theodore Roosevelt and President Wilson, Thomas A. Edison, Colonel Charles Lindbergh, and many other prominent people of this country as well as some of the crown heads of Europe and prominent officers and men in the European War carried one or more of these little lucky pieces tucked snugly away about them.

LEGEND OF THE FAMOUS PACTRICK COUNTY VA. FAIRY OR LUCKY STONES

     In a quiet sunny glade nestled among the rugged foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, in Patrick County, Virginia, a section made renowned by the fact that old King Powhatan once held undisputed possession there, was discovered a single quarry of the far-famed Virginia "Fairy" or "Lucky" stones.

     These little curiosities, which range in size from one-fourth of an inch to two inches, bear in the most unique form some shape of a cross, which has been outlined by Nature’s own hand.

      In that weird spot, about the only known place in the world where the little wonder-working gems are to be found, the good fairies flourished and had their workshop many hundreds of years ago. This, you probably say, was rather a strange place for Titiania's subjects but were you to visit this charming mountain region you would find every rock and tree infected with glamor and romance.

     As to the real origin of these crosses of stone, comparatively nothing is known  as the leading scientists of the country have failed to throw any satisfactory light on the subject; but in that remote mountain section runs a very pretty legend to the effect that hundreds of years before King Powhatan's dynasty came into power long before the woods breathed the gentle spirit of the lovely Pocahontas, the fairies were dancing around a spring of limpid water, playing with the naiads and wood nymphs, when an elfin messenger arrived from a strange city, far away in the land of the dawn, bringing the sad tidings of the death of Christ; and when they heard the terrible story of the crucifixion they wept.  And as the tears fell upon the earth they were crystallized into little pebbles, on each of which was formed a beautiful cross.  When the fairies had disappeared from the enchanted spot the ground around the spring and the adjacent valley were strewn with these unique mementoes of that melancholy event.

    Not even in the old world, with its quaint and curious lore, is a more beautiful legend to be found, and just haw it originated no one knows; but for more than a century thousands of people have held these little crosses of stone in more or less superstitious awe, being firm in the belief that they will protect the wearer against witchcraft, sickness, accidents and disasters of all kinds.  Every stone is in some shape of a cross, and millions of people are now wearing them in various forms of jewelry.

    See "The trail of the Lonesome Pine". by John Fox, Jr., (page 174). The lover gives his sweetheart one of these stones and you will note the luck it gives them.

    Many of them are of the St. Andrews variety, others Roman, while those most sought after are the Maltese.

    The State of Virginia has converted over five thousand acres of land into beautiful FAIRY STONE PARK, taking the name from this famous gem. Many thousands enjoy swimming, boating, fishing, horseback riding, and picnicking. Many modern cabins have been built for vacationists.
