Rocko tumbled these semiprecious stones in his National Geographic tumbler and is now selling them to you. The price is for one stone, about 0.5"-1" for medium or 1"-2" in size on its longest axis. Each one is different.

If you are interested in tumbling your own stones, you can get details here.

Rocko decided to sell some of his tumbled stones that we purchased as rough from National Geographic. He plans to use the money for savings, for his and Joy's college funds, and for books from his school's book fair (we save money for this from recycling as well).

Agate is a beautiful and versatile mineral that has been used by humans for centuries. From ancient times to modern day, agate has been prized for its beauty and durability, and has been used in everything from jewelry and decorative objects to industrial applications.

Agate has a long and fascinating history. It was first discovered by ancient civilizations such as the Greeks and the Egyptians, who used it in jewelry and decorative objects. It was also believed to have mystical and healing properties, and was used in spiritual and religious practices. Today, it's still a popular choice for jewelry and decorative objects, and is also used in a variety of industrial applications such as in the production of grinding and polishing equipment.

But agate isn't just valued for its historical uses – it's also a mineral with unique physical properties. It's a type of chalcedony that is made up of tiny quartz crystals, which give it a distinctive banded appearance. Its structure makes it a hard and durable mineral, and its composition makes it resistant to weathering and erosion.

Agate is a fascinating and versatile mineral that has played an important role in human history. Its unique properties and applications make it a popular choice for everything from jewelry to industrial equipment.
