Preseli Bluestone – Stonehenge Bluestone

Preseli Bluestone is also called Stonehenge Bluestone or Preseli Dolerite. Additionally, it is also called simply Bluestone or Preseli. It is often misspelled as Presili.

This crystal is a type of Dolerite or Diabase that comes only from the UK. It is a combination of minerals. And the combination varies. The most exciting thing to me about Preseli Bluestone is that it is the stone that Stonehenge is made of.

Preseli Bluestone was used at least in the third phase of construction at Stonehenge. Each piece weighs 2-4 tons. And there are 43 pieces left out of an estimated 80. It is not known whether these huge stones were moved from the Preseli Mountains in Wales to Wiltshire by glaciers or by man. It is a puzzle I hope we can solve one day. For now, we do have the beautiful and powerful Preseli Bluestone to use in our physical and spiritual works.

Many people find Preseli Bluestone confusing at first. It is often not very blue in the polished form we see most often. Then it appears more green with speckles of black and spots of white. You can also find it with shades of purple or yellow. In its natural form, it is bluer, especially when wet or just broken.
