  • Fairy Crosses are found in the area of Fairy Stone State Park, Stuart, Virginia.

    Many hundreds of years before Chief Powhatan's reign, fairies were dancing around a spring of water, playing with naiads and wood nymphs, when an elfin messenger arrived from a city far away.

    He brought news of the death of Christ. When these creatures of the forest heard the story of the crucifixion, they wept.

    As their tears fell upon the earth, they crystallized to form beautiful crosses.

    When the fairies disappeared from the enchanted place, ground about the spring and the adjacent valley was strewn with these mementoes of the event.

    For many years people held these little crosses in superstitious awe, firm in the belief that they protected the wearer against witchcraft, sickness, accidents, and disaster. Maybe they do.

  • Fairy Crosses are used to honor several Irish Faerie Goddesses, They include Finnine, an Irish Faire Goddess. Ainthe, the Irish Goddess of the Moon; Airmed, the Irish Goddess of Herbal Lore, and Cliodna, the Irish Goddess of the Sea.

  • In "Love is in the Earth", Melody recounts the story of the Fairy's tears. She also notes that the Crosses can be used for relief of stress and reducing tension. In "The Book of Stones" Robert Simmons tells us that these are good grounding stones, and that they can help one resonate deeply with the love and sweetness that permeates the fairy realm.
