STORY

A sacred stone that was supposedly endowed with life was called Baetylus. According to ancient sources, these objects of worship were meteorites, which were dedicated to the gods or revered as symbols of the gods themselves. A baetyl is also mentioned in the Bible at Bethel in the Book of Genesis in the story of Jacob’s Ladder.

This small fir tree wood bulb was part of a larger tree root which was torn apart by one of last winter’s storms. It was found on a rarely used path from Sinaia to the Red Rock. In was a mild winter day, but because the tree root was so big and standing out, it was easily observed through the clean white snow. It wasn’t easy to get, because the terrain was steep and slippery.
