Jacob's Pillar Stone Long resided as the Coronation Stone in St. Edward's Chapel in Westminister Abbey in Britain. No other object has been given such high honors. In Westminster Abbey, under the throne of Edward I, lies a stone 26" x 16" x 10.5" of purplish-red sandstone of a type not found in the U.K. but found in Judea and Moab. [The stone] has two very worn iron rings and has a great crack in it. All the Monarchs of Great Britain since its removal from Scone in Scotland 700 years before 1996, have been crowned on it apart from Mary Queen of Scots. It was so esteemed by the British people that when Edward III was forced to return the crown jewels and this stone to Scotland in 1328, there were riots in the streets of London and only the regalia were returned.
Jeremiah brought the Stone with him when he arrived in Ireland after King Zedakiah of Judah was taken captive

It's not the real scone of destiny. Duncan McLeod stole the real one and replaced it with a fake one.
Scone of destiny? Sounds like a decadent breakfast treat to have with a good cup of java.
The Stone of Scone, also known as the Stone of Destiny, is seen as of huge significance to Scotland's nationhood. It was the seat on which generations of Kings of Scotland, and Kings of Dalriada before them, were crowned. Until 1296 it was housed at Scone Abbey, where the coronations of Kings of Scotland took place: the last being of John Balliol. But Edward I of England stripped Scotland of all emblems of nationhood in 1296, and took the Stone of Destiny to a new home in Westminster Abbey. For the next 700 years it was to be housed in a specially-built coronation chair, on which Kings and Queens of England, then of Britain, were crowned.
