Whether you've been staring at a screen all day or rolling through fields of allergy-inducing flowers or stayed out too late and your puffy eyes are in need of a reprieve, reach for these goofy-looking rocks!
These stones come from a Carelian soapstone bedrock that formed over 2 billion years ago in Finland. Hand-carved from 100% Carelian soapstone, these eye stones are super dense which makes them great for hot or cold therapies.
Pop these in the fridge for itchy allergy relief &/or to de-puff your precious peepers. Or slightly warm to comfort dry eye syndrome from too much screen time.
Various hot & cold stone therapies have been used for thousands of years. Hukka Harmony therapy stones are crafted from Finnish soapstone, a unique natural stone with modern benefits.
History of Carelian Soapstone
2.8 billion years ago earth was still at the very early stage of its history. There was not a single living thing on earth and the continental blocks started moving to their modern-day positions. Volcanic activity was very high even in Scandinavia, which is one of the oldest geological areas on earth.
As the solid surface of the earth was moving and the continental blocks collided a high mountain range was formed in the area. As the mountains were rising, huge air pockets were forming underneath them. Fluid, volcanic stone was filling those pockets. Under this intense heat and extremely high pressure very special stone, Carelian Soapstone was formed.
It lay at rest under the high mountains for billions of years till the northern hemisphere was re-shaped by quite another type of force from nature: The Ice Age. Huge masses of continental ice swept over the area, so enormous was the pressure that it even leveled down the Carelian mountain range, that had been hiding one of the most interesting gifts of nature: Carelian soapstone.
Still, it had to wait for quite a long time before anybody understood to start making all sorts of items of it. Tens of thousands of years of the midnight sun in the summer and beautiful symphonies of northern lights in the winter made the stone even more special.
Mother Nature gave Carelian soapstone mythical capabilities to withstand the harsh Nordic environment. It can handle equally well hot fire or freezing cold. It is capable of accumulating both heat as well as cold. And it stays warm or cold for a long time. This is one of the unique characteristics of Hukka products.
Carelian soapstone is a relatively soft stone material, that can be crafted in various shapes and forms by experienced craftsmen. Even though soft, the stone is a very dense and heavy material. For example, it does not absorb any liquids or tastes. Soapstone has been tested and approved to be used in preparing or storing food products. Soapstone is an extremely sturdy stone material, that can well withstand the challenges of a modern environment. 2.8 billion years long “manufacturing process” has prepared it for most of the challenges it might encounter.
Carelian soapstone has been formed from soft and semi-soft minerals:
Talc 40-50 %
Magnetite 40-50 %
Pennite 5-8 %
Talc makes Carelian soapstone soft and relatively easy to form. High magnetite content makes it sturdy.
