i'm writing you a symphony of sound.
do people ever give you odd reactions when you give them stones as a gift? i have a habit of doing so, and people's reactions are generally very amusing to me. most of the time i don't tend to explain, either. that could probably be a part of it......

I would usually only give stones to people that would understand. :)

but part of the fun is watching them try and figure out why it was important enough to me to give to them! :D

i guess some people just don't like rocks ):

The only person I tend to give stones to is my Mother, who was the one who started off my interest in the first place. Her husband (who actually does like them too) tends to roll his eyes and complains about having to find more space.

I normally give them to people also who would have an idea about what they are about, or they might otherwise feel like Charlie Brown on Halloween. ;) lol

It is a good opportunity though to explain the personal meaning they have and why you felt that was the right stone for them. It turns something so simple into something that can be so very meaningful and never forgotten. ♥

my favourite things i own are rocks from other people. i had friends travel on a huge road trip, and they picked out a rock from each state along the coast for me.

explaining it is probably the most fun part. :D

I give rocks to friends, but I always explain them in a note with the present, or in person. :) Now my friends have come to expect awesome rock presents. Those that don't understand just smile and enjoy how shiny they are ;)

the only one i've ever given stones to was my boyfriend - i was feeling very fearful at that time and insisted that he carried it (quartz) with him as protection. initially he rejected it, then reluctantly accepted it.

recently i used some quartz stones to create a protective field around my cell phone to minimize the radiation. what do you know, the next day when i come home, his phone is inside the stone ring xD

would def. love to give stones to ppl and have them think it's completely random when it in fact has been carefully though over.... =) cool idea. thanks for the post!
