Tumble polished stones
What Are Tumbled Stones? Tumbled stones are small pieces of rocks and minerals that have been brought to a bright polish in a rock tumbler. They are also known as “polished stones” and “baroque gems”. They are used to make jewelry, given as rewards and mementoes, used in a variety of craft projects, and are a part of many New Age beliefs and practices.

Sizes of Tumbled Stones: Our tumbled stones are sold in five different sizes - with size being defined as the maximum dimension of the stone. A list of the sizes, their approximate dimensions,and approximate stone counts per pound are shown below. We have a printable size guide to assist in your selection. The stones are sized by machine using screens, so a small number of oversized or undersized stones should be expected in each package.

Pricing of Tumbled Stones: All of our tumbled stones are sold by the pound. The larger the package that you purchase the lower your cost per pound. These are the prices that we charge everyone. We do not sell wholesale or give further discount. If you are interested in buying larger quantities of stones we have bulk packages for 10, 20 and 40 pounds.

Warning: Polished stones can be a choking hazard for small children

Extra large polished stones
Extra Large Polished Stones: This is our second most popular size of tumbled stones. They range in maximum dimension from approximately 1 1/4 inch up to approximately 2 inches. One pound of extra large stones generally contains between 18 and 25 stones. A three pound bag of extra large stones usually contains between eight and sixteen different types of stones. For a higher diversity, smaller stones are recommended because some stone varieties rarely occur in large pieces and because there are a larger number of stones per pound. Extra large stones are often used as accents in potted plants, as ground cover in outdoor planters, as mementoes and rewards for students, for many New Age practices, and much more.   Printable Size Guide   Bulk Pricing

Large polished stones
Large Polished Stones: This is the perfect size stone for wire-wrapping a pendant, making a nice keychain, using as game pieces, or making tumbled stone critters. They range in maximum dimension from approximately 7/8 inch up to approximately 1 3/8 inches. One pound of large stones generally contains between 35 and 50 stones. A three pound bag of large stones usually contains between ten and twenty different types of stones. Large tumbled stones look great in a jar or in a bowl on a desk, shelf or coffee table. Your visitors will try to talk you into sharing them. Large stones are a good size to carry in your pocket for luck or for use as a “worry stone”. If you are using them for rewards or mementoes, they go alot farther than the extra large stones because there are more of them per pound. Place some large stones in a basket for a nice bright and colorful centerpiece. Large stones are a very good size for game pieces, accents in potted plants, chakra stones or for use in a number of different New Age activities. Some people call them “healing stones” or “healing crystals”, but we have never seen any scientific or medical studies to confirm that this is true.   Printable Size Guide   Bulk Pricing

Medium Polished Stones - Size Range: 3/4" to 1" (18 to 25 mm)
Medium polished stones
Medium Polished Stones: “Medium” is the most popular size stone that we sell. They are perfect for many jewelry and craft projects. Medium stones range in maximum dimension from approximately 3/4 inch up to approximately 1 inch in size. One pound bag of medium stones usually contains between 80 and 100 stones. Medium stones also have a good diversity. The typical three-pound bag of medium stones usually contains between twelve and twenty four different types of stones. Medium stones make nice-size pendants, earrings, tie-tacks and key rings. They are large enough to make a nice appearance in jewelry but are not so large that they are difficult to glue properly. Medium stones are usually large enough to exhibit the characteristics of their variety and be easily identified. That makes them a good choice of stones for educational projects. They are the right size for an inexpensive give-away because a small bag of a dozen medium stones is a relatively inexpensive gift or promotion. Glue a few medium stones to a picture frame or cabinet door for a nice colorful effect.   Printable Size Guide   Bulk Pricing
