There is life in a stone. Any stone that sits in a field or lies on a beach takes on the memory of that place. You can feel that stones have witnessed so many things.
— Andy Goldsworthy
PALM STONES are exactly what they sound like. Stones that are meant to sit comfortably in your palm. Some people use them passively, to sit and meditate, or actively, to worry them with thumbs or fingers. They are often rounded, wide and flat. This cube (or hexahedron) variation still has a lovely weight in the palm, but its structure gives it a different tactile experience, as well as providing different vibes. Some crystalline structures in nature take the shape of the cube, including some salts, hematite, and variations of fluorite.
Cube – The cube sits flat and solid, and associates with the energies of the earth element, and grounding. This shape can help amplify the vibes of the stone that it carved from. It is great to keep in a busy office, as it will help keep people grounded and calm.
