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.
