Beautiful Opalite tumblestones, available in two sizes.
The more you buy, the cheaper they get - up to a point, of course!
These stones are ideal for displaying in a bowl or a small vase, due to their size. If you are looking for larger stones for a fish tank or aquarium, we do sell those occasionally although our stock is more sporadic.
Opalite is not a gemstone or a mineral - it is a man made glass. As a glass, it is quite brittle if dropped or knocked against hard surfaces, and could easily break into sharp pieces.
The pictures you see here are representative of the products and are usually not the exact item you will receive. Where various grades are available we do try to photograph each grade - but some photographs are still on their way!
What are tumblestones?
Tumblestones are stones that have been put in spinning barrels with an abrasive compound for weeks or months. This slowly rounds off the rough rock and corners – the stones are then cleaned, and placed with a less abrasive grit. This happens several times until the stones are placed into a barrel with a polishing compound for their final polish.
