Fairy Stone is a calcium carbonate.

It’s made of fine argillaceous sand mixed with limestone cement and created in the permeable layers of a basin.

This basin is formed by diminishing glaciers where water loaded with carbon dioxide flowed through the rocks and broke down the limestone that they contained.

Having undergone a different kind of pressure and exposed to different temperature conditions, the leftover lime deposits in the lakes from the broken-down glaciers are sculpted into rounded stones and beautiful forms of abstract natural art.

They are then deposited in the shores of rivers and lakes.

Fairy Stones can be found in the Harricana River in Canada.

Some Fairy Stones that can be found today contain small traces left by miniature worms and microorganisms, and even organic remains that have been fossilized millions of years ago!
