I'll have to look again, but I think they might be from the Old Testament, as well. Something is dinging faintly in my head about black and white stones being used by Hebrew priests for something. It's been a while since I did an OT study, so I could be wrong. Research requiredWalter O'Dim an Andre Linoge in my mind are one and the same. By another coincidence, I think those Weirding Stones appear in Lost.
