These Lakelandite Tumble Stones are a wonderful combination of the dark greenish grey crystalline rock Basalt and the pale cream feldspar solution known as Bytownite.
Formed about 470 million years ago in a violent and cataclysmic time in the Lake District, this rock was created and subsequently buried and eventually exposed by glacial action and erosion. Somewhat apt that Lakelandite is believed to help deal with trauma and bring peace and order from chaotic situations.
Tumblestones bring to you the beauty of rocks, minerals and gemstones, which are usually difficult to appreciate in their natural state. Tumbling, a long process of smoothing and polishing, reveals the wonderful colour and form of these natural treasures that are so often hidden deep in the earth.
For thousands of years, stones have been polished to reveal their beauty and have always been associated with spiritual and healing properties. Tumble stones are perfect as healing stones, easy to carry with you or to offer as a crystal gift for those who could benefit from them. A stone not only for the esoteric enthusiast but for the crystal collector as well, these tumbled stones are an inexpensive way to develop a large and attractive collection.
