They are simply a rock. A rock that transforms itself over thousands of years into a force of great beauty. They look beautiful on their own or mixed with other elements of nature. I like the way they look sitting on a bookshelf, mixed with something modern or classic. When used this way, nature is introduced into ones home.
I like to find small versions of the big ones and carry them around with me, in my pocket. In moments of stress, I reach into my pocket, close my eyes, and hold them. I like they way they feel, they soothe and calm me.
It is always amazing to me how they look when transformed into great objects of desire.
They are a true miracle of nature. WOW!
