I watched this show some ~7 years ago - I remember it aired approximately the same time as Smallville, so let's say 2000s to be sure - in Russia (but the series certainly wasn't Russian-made). It seemed fairly recent (at that time).

Two teens (boy and girl) from different cities (possibly even different countries) discover that turning, or otherwise manipulating the stone could be used to open a portal to another city - in fact, this is how they meet, if memory serves.

There was a book somehow connected to the stone - a sort of manual. They couldn't use it because it was damaged for some reason, so they give it to a friend, who claims he has some expertise in binding/restoring books after attending some workshop.

At the end of the series this friend finishes restoring the book, and uses the portal to go somewhere, leaving a note along the lines of

I know your secret now. The stone and portal are somehow connected to meteors.
