Yes they are stones

Lori: Honey, look at these amazing beads I got today in the mail.

Joe: Oh wow. Cool. Who made those?

Lori: No one, they're stones!

Joe: No way, those can't be stones. They look ceramic.

Lori: Look at this other strand I got! Aren't they incredible?

Joe: Who made those? Those definitely aren't stones.

Lori: THEY ARE STONES!! Can you believe it!?

Joe: They can't be stones. They look man-made.  That's pretty amazing.

My thoughts exactly. If I could marry a stone, it would be one of those handsome stones from the top photo. Just doesn't get any better than that!! Top stones are Noreena Jasper, the bottom stones are Utah Wonderstone.

  15. I'm originally from Utah and the bottom stones are very familiar to me. My grandfather was a bit of a rock hound and he had a bolo tie made out of this stone, which I inherited after he died. I was told the stone is actually rhyolite, and the gray spots in it are hematite. Its only found in southern Utah. This brings back lots of fond memories for me.
