This stone has been meticulously cleaned and some gneiss has been removed, but if you handle it much, the blue crystals will absorb the oil and moisture from your hands, visibly darken, and turn a red/brown color because of the aluminum hydroxide in it which is used in antiperspirant and Calamine Lotion(absorbs urushiol oil of poison ivy and poison oak). Just wash it in Dawn dishwashing detergent and water and let dry.
The stone will return to it's natural blue color. The short version of the story of the fairy stones goes like this: When the fairies heard of the death and crucifixion of Jesus they wept; and their tears formed these crosses.
