    In order:

    1 - When in Limbo, go down to where you smash the door with the burning man. Continue through the tunnel, DO NOT GO THROUGH THE SIDE DOORS YET, you will come to the head of the huge demon you killed at end of last chapter. Push it out for Burning Eyes achievement. Turn the corner and the stone is in the fountain next to the Eyes of St Lucia relic.

    2 - In gluttony, hall of mirrors puzzle on right hand side.

    3 - Descent into Greed, in the tunnel, just before the end, there are ledges on either side. Jump up onto the right-hand side one. instead of jumping straight to the left-hand side, try jumping diagonally left and backwards, this should take you under the archway. Use only one jump to do this and just as you get under the archway press A again to double jump and grab the ledge.

    m0rph3us17Re #2... this requires you to jump to the right off the moving platform. The jump can be a bit tough due to the platform rotating and moving. The best way to do it is to get on the platform, and move across to the side with the rung hanging down underneath it. The best time to jump is when the platform moves across to the right and the rung is on the right hand side (i.e. facing the area with the fountain).

    Dingo SaladI also got the one in anger. You can probably only know that if you don't collect the ones before them to finish the cross. It's right after you fight some enemies in a doughnut shaped area with a little 'pool of bad' in the center. You come to a rope you can hang from and go across that has a health fountain beside it. If you go all the way across instead of jumping down the Beatrice fountain is right by the magic fountain.

    I found another stone not listed here (that I can find, anyway), that gives you all three stones by the end of Gluttony. I'm guessing maybe it was added on later to compensate for the difficulty in getting the Gluttony stone...?

    Adding to N1ghtwolf89's very helpful guide:

    "In order:

    1 - When in Limbo, go down to where you smash the door with the burning man. Continue through the tunnel, DO NOT GO THROUGH THE SIDE DOORS YET, you will come to the head of the huge demon you killed at end of last chapter. Push it out for Burning Eyes achievement. Turn the corner and the stone is in the fountain next to the Eyes of St Lucia relic.

    2 - In Lust, as you approach the bridge with the tornado, you'll see a gold fountain to the lower right, towards the far end of the bridge. Run to the second or third circle from the tornado and climb down the wall of the damned to reach it. You may have to climb down on the left side and climb all the way around to the right (under the bridge), but it is definitely possible - even easy - and it is a stone.

    3 - In Gluttony, hall of mirrors puzzle on right hand side. (To beat the mirror puzzle, look to the guide here: http://guides.teamxbox.com/xbox-360/1061462/Dantes-Inferno/p...)

    4 - Descent into Greed, in the tunnel, just before the end, there are ledges on either side. Jump up onto the right-hand side one. instead of jumping straight to the left-hand side, try jumping diagonally left and backwards, this should take you under the archway. Use only one jump to do this and just as you get under the archway press A again to double jump and grab the ledge."

    BzartI can confirm the one found in Lust as well. It's possible they added a bunch so if you missed one you could still find all 3 by the end of the game.

    LBCeroyIts between the third and fourth circles on the right side of the bridge.

    Credit for this video goes to Achievement Hunters/Rooster Teeth. Just keep playing through the campaign till you find all 3, if you miss one you have to restart since theres no level selections.

    Beatrice Stone 1: *Limbo*
    From the save point talk to Virgil until he disappears. Move left and down the wall. Grab the ghoul and throw it at the sparkling wall to reveal a passageway. Turn left when you see Acheron's head to find [Silver Coin 05]. Head back and move past the head to find a Beatrice Stone and the [RELIC]Eye's of St. Lucia.

    ---------------------------------
    Beatrice Stone 2: *Gluttony*
    After killing the first Glutton (bile spewing fellow) head into the far portal in the next room and pull the lever on the ledge you're taken to. Then head through the right portal and all the way to the right of this strip to a climbable area. Move up it and look right for a soul fountain. Continue up the wall for [Silver Coin 11].

    Head all the way back and use the lever at the bottom of the climbable area. Quickly head through the left portal and run onto the new wooden platform and use it to jump across to the bottom path. Open the soul fountain. Watch the moving table, and when it seems to spin in place under the portal that is facing down at the top left of the screen, head through the right portal. This is the tricky part: when the table floats as far right as it can go, double jump to the right and grab the ledge (you can BARELY make it) before it goes through the portal on the left for a soul fountain for a Beatrice Stone.

    If you dont jump and it takes you through the portal, you're out of luck on picking up that stone. Once you get the stone, wait for the table to spin under the top left portal again and walk (drop) into the portal on the floor on the ledge you jumped across to and you'll once again land on the spinning table.

    Partial credit to Samael258 for roughly outlining what to do in this section. He didn't mention the part about where the last portal next to the stone takes you though, and I ended up falling to my death and having to re-do that hellish jump again.
    -----------------------------------
    Beatrice Stone 3: *Gluttony*
    To find this one, it's best just to follow samael's guide along from where you got stone 2 because the exact location is hard to describe.
    So, after you finish that annoying portal/jumping puzzle...
    Head down the path and grab the soul fountain next to the save point, then head down the corpse pillar. Drop down to the rope and swing over to another corpse pillar. Climb all the way up and grab [Silver Coin 12] and [RELIC]Octavian's Gold. Head back down the pillar.

    Drop down to the rope below and quickly move to the left. Drop down to the next rope, and drop all the way down and off of it. Push the tooth-looking object all the way to the left to put out the flames, and wait a few seconds. Now push it all the way back to it's starting position quickly, and grab the rope and swing across before the flames come back fully. Destroy the link.

    Head down the corpse pillar and drop down to the rope below. Make your way to the left and drop down. Be ready to hit R1 to catch a grappling point and swing over to the left. Jump across to the rope, slide down, then jump across to the corpse pillar. Head all the way down here and drop off.

    Follow the path. When you come to a large wall, climb it and look to the right for a ledge you can jump up to. Open the soul fountain, then jump across the opening to the left and onto the other platform. Jump again towards the left and grab [Silver Coin 13]. Drop down and hang off of the ledge in the foreground. Move to the right while hanging, then rise up while behind the rock to find [RELIC]Crown of Carthage. Jump down, then back up on the left side. Grab the magic and health fountains if you need them. ***Get back onto the ledge on the right. Look in the background of the screen, on the left up the wall just forward through the archway to to see an orange pedestal. The timing can be tricky, just keep trying. Jump diagonally forward and to the left once off of the right ledge and then, as soon as you have cleared the arch, hit the double-jump and you should grab onto the ledge. Pull yourself up for the third Beatrice Stone.*** This ledge is FORWARD through the arch on the left, not back where you found the other fountain.

    Beatrice stones can be gotten at other locations later in the game (there are a total of 6- you can only carry 3), but these are some of the three earliest points you can nab them. The set of 3 adds the option to auto-absolve to the regular set of punish or absolve options, but you wont get as many souls from auto-absolving as you would if you played the little sin collection minigame with manual absolving which you still have the option to do even with the set, but at least it gets you the achievement, eh?

    This achievement is actually bugged, meaning that you can collect the first Beatrice stone past Acheron's head in subsequent playthroughs three times and still pop this achiev, and still recieve the in-game benefits.

    Beatrice Stone Locations:
    *NOTE: As the other guides say, you need 3 Stones for the achievement to unlock. Once you obtain 3 Beatrice Stones, the other fountains will only give you souls, with a bit of health and mana mixed in there as well.*

    1. Limbo - You come to a crossroads of sorts, with the option to push Charon's head or open the demon door. Push the giant head (for an achievement) to find a Beatrice Stone and relic.

    2. Lust - When you come to the bridge, head over to the charged plate and go to the right. There's a hidden ledge that lets you drop down. Follow the path and you'll find the Beatrice Stone.

    3. Gluttony - In the maze, it is off on the right hand side. To get there, go through the maze normally, but when you get to the second moving platform that would take you out of the maze, double jump to the right when the platform is at the lowest point. Collect your Beatrice Stone, then fall through the door closer to the screen to land on the platform again and exit the maze.

    4. Greed - After dropping off a corpse ladder, you'll come to a large ledge. Climb up, then look to the ledge on the right and jump up there. *Don't miss the coin and relic found in these ledges* Do a tough double jump to the top left of the screen, toward the archway. You could also try this from the left, but I found it easier going cross-screen. There is an additional hidden ledge there that has a Beatrice Stone.

    5. Anger - After the fight with the fire creatures and temptresses and absolving the shade, the next room has a rope that hangs right to left. Before dropping off the rope and onto the sinking platform below, continue all the way to the left for a mana fountain and a Beatrice Stone.

    6. Heresy - You'll come to a second hallway of fire, with Virgil at the end beyond the demon door. Above Virgil's head, there's a corpse ladder to grab onto and climb up to a ledge. There are two fountains, one containing a Beatrice Stone, and a relic up here, so make sure you go around the entire platform.

    If you have not gotten 3 by the time you pass Heresy, then you will need to collect them in your next playthrough.
