I was sold something called a "peace stone" - apparently it is a newly
discovered stone. It is a white/cream color with pink and sea green
spots through it. I was actually sold 6 of them as beads for jewelry
making, they are fairly large, about 4-6 inches in the shape of an eye
and about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. I want to know more about this stone,
where it comes from and any energetic properties it may have. I'm
assuming it is called something else - maybe a scientific name. It
has to be something - I know it's not plastic!!

Many minerals are called "peace stone." I make my own jewelry, and
I've visited quite a few bead merchants. I have seen this name applied
to turquoise, kunzite, smithsonite, agate, fluorite, and other stones.
Many stones with fancy names turn out to be some form of quartz. It is
amazing what a variety of appearances quartz can have.
I'd take the claim that this is "a newly discovered stone" with a
grain of salt. This kind of description is often a marketing ploy.
Sometimes such claims are made for stones that have been known for
It would be very helpful if you could photograph the stone and post
the photo online where we could see it.
