***These are all ancient stones with meanings that have traveled through time. By owning a rock shop I've been asked many times if I believe all these meanings. All I could ever say was, I don't really know for a fact, I'm just a guy that likes to play in the dirt. I've always been amazed at the beauty of the stone that one could dig out of the dirt and the ability to take something rough and turn it into a work of art.***
