Worry stones are used for many different reasons by many different cultures. It is thought to have first originated in ancient Greece. A worry stone is used to relieve stress, to clear and calm the mind, for meditation to center your concentration and for luck.
Being of Irish descent, I am familiar with worry stones. I have four of them. I received each for a different reason. The white was to wish me good health for a surgery, the angel was to give me hope on another occasion, the green connemara marble one was to relieve worry and wish me luck. The black Iis for Faith. I've had for so long, I am not sure when I got it. I can guarantee the stones can relieve stress and worry. Perhaps it is because you concentrate on the stone and not on your problem. But for whatever reason; I do believe in them. To use a worry stone; hold it in your hand between your thumb and index finger and rub it with your thumb.
Connemara marble comes from a district in the West of Ireland on a peninsula between Killary Harbor and Kilkieran Bay. The famous Connemara Green marble is found along a line between Streamstown and Lissoughter. It was a trade treasure used by the inhabitants of prehistoric times. It is still of great value today.
