Stonehenge is said to have been erected 5000 years ago (1). It is located in Amesbury Wiltshire, England. The monument is made up of a smaller inner circle with 82 bluestones and a larger outer circle made of sarcen stones. The purpose of the monument is unknown but it is theorized that it is a center of healing. The formation of the Stonehenge does conform to the solar and lunar calendars used by the Neolithic people; hence, it is undeniably a primitive form of telling the dates and seasons. It could also be a memorial place or a place where people can communicate with their ancestors.
Slabs of bluestones like the picture above can be found elsewhere in the UK like this one it’s found in Carn Menyn. It is still a mystery how the stones were transported towards the Stonehenge area. Others say that it was transported by humans; others say it was through glacial means.
Do visit our shop at 2W 14th St. New York, New York to witness this Stonehenge bluestone in pendant form which you could use as remembrance for this historic and mysterious monument or you could use it for healing like the Neolithic people do.
