It wasn't a literal stone, but some kind of cement that supposedly contained a piece of the true cross. I don't know that it really did, but when we had a new altar made for the church, we included the stone. And in fact all the altars I had made had a piece of marble incorporated into it. No relics though. Just as an aside, they were also all the same dimensions so as to make it easy to order paraments.

Subject: [liturgy-l] Chopping the Whiners
I know you wanted the latest updates on altar-stones ...
Today I ran across this 18th cnetury liturgical phrase:
"He chopped the whiners."
In other words, the Anglican parson read the Sunday prayers as quickly as
Ah, the Anglican patrimony.
