The striped flint was formed 150 million years ago as a result of the extinction of a colony of one species of sea sponges. In Krzemionki, it was mined as early as the Neolithic and was used for the production of axes, mainly of cult and magical significance. In Poland, not so long ago, striped flint was used to harden roads. It is currently used for the production of jewelry, such as pendants with striped flint, which you can find in our AnKa Jewelry store.
