History: Preseli Dolerite (Bluestone) is a metamorphic igneous rock made up of Plagioclase Feldspar and Augite and is a Pyroxene mineral (calcium magnesium aluminosilicate. Ca, Mg, FE, AI, (Al,Si,206). It is medium grained dark and heavy rock, harder than granite. Legend has it that Merlin transported stones from the Preseli Hills to Stonehenge for the construction of Camelot and King Arthur’s Round Table. Of the 7 circles that go to make up Stonehenge, the 5th circle and inner horseshoe are constructed from stones known as “Bluestones” which originated in the Preseli Hills. Of the 45 remaining stones at Stonehenge, 9 remain standing in the 5th circle and 7 in the horseshoe.

The Welsh legends called the Mabinogion, which means “Tales of Youth”, come from here and it is said that the way into “Annwn”, the Welsh fairyland, can be found here too. Indeed, Pentre Ifan, sometimes called “The Womb of Cerridwen”, which is also built of Preseli Bluestone and located within the Preseli Hills, is said to be one of the main gateways into therealm of Fairies.

The Preseli Hills themselves are crisscrossed with ley lines, ancient tracks, standing stones, burial chambers, stone circles and the hills which sparkle with shining white crystal quartz. Even during early Christian times, the place was considered almost as holy as Jerusalem and Rome. This is also the land of Druids who still continue this 5,000-year old tradition of building stone circles in Wales each year for their National Eisteddfods.

Cleansing & Charging Preseli Stone

~ Cleansing a crystal is always a good idea to rid it of energies (negative or otherwise) that it may have picked up during handling and excessive use.

~ Charging a crystal is bringing its energy levels back up, after use and cleansing. Like re-charging a battery after it has lost its energy.  A great way to do this (and remind you that it is time to do so) is during a full moon.

The Power of Color

Color plays a major role in determining how your crystal can help you.  A crystal’s color is due to its combination of minerals, which give it it’s own personality.  It contributes in what attracts you to it.  The psychological aspects of color determine how a crystal’s healing properties work.
