My special rocks:

http://www.geocities...cial_stones.jpg

The pink one has a white bit at the end, like an eye. I haven't tried it in any magic or protection spells, but I know that some native american tribes attribute special powers to such rocks.

The gray one is like a natural stone knuckle. It fits easily in the hand, however I also wonder if it was used for breaking down grains into powder at some time in the past because there's the little teaspoon-sized hollow in it.

All speculation, I know, but I hold onto these rocks because they're different from the usual beach rock.

Any comments on them are welcome.

I really like that grey one, Carlotta. The first thing I thought of when I saw it was that it must be a nice "worry" stone--it seems like the way it fits in your hand would be very comforting somehow.

I have two --one is a smoky quartz and the other is an amethyst. I picked them because I just liked how they looked, they just seemed to be the "right" ones.

It is a comfortable stone to hold, because the fingers seem to wrap naturally around it. I can't remember where I picked it up, but I wish it could talk and tell me how it got its interesting shape.
