I’m sure there’s a good explanation embedded in the DNA of why zebras have stripes or why Belted Galloway cows have a white stripe through their middle. In rocks and minerals the white stripe is easy to explain. The native country rock formed at an earlier time, split, then later molten white quartz filled the opening, cementing the two halves together. The bond is so strong that millions of years later as rock is eroded away, it forms chunks and along the coast is tumbled and smoothed, revealing a dark rock with a white stripe.
Everybody loves them, picking them up on beaches and bringing them home. We first learned about “Lucky Stones” from Ellen in Vinalhaven. She said, “Look around, you’ll see them everywhere.” Look we did, and saw them on book cases, bureaus, fire place mantles, window sills, and as door stops. They seemed especially to be part of island culture. Ellen said Lucky Stones bring good fortune to everyone who resides in the home. A wonderful Maine island custom. Inland on lakes I’ve heard them referred to as Wishing Stones.
