The Oland stone only comes from Oland which is an island off the East coast of Sweden in the Baltic Sea.
In the stone there are many millipede type fossils from approximately 500 million years ago, as well as other insect fossils.
These vases were recently purchased from a Swedish family living on the island.
If you would like to use these for water over a period of several days then a glass beaker slipped inside is advisable as the limestone is porous.
