Do you prefer rough or tumbled stones?

What's your favorite stone/What stone do you use most often?

I prefer rough, but I like tumbled because they're a little more durable in my opinion. Right now my favorite is rhodonite. I have to get more quartz, though. I like to keep quartz with my tarot cards and runes, but right now I only have one tumbled and one point, and three tarot decks and some runes lol.

  • Depends on my purpose for them. But most of the time natural. My favorite is Amethyst. Quartz is always in my stash too. Along with Garnet and a few others.

  • I prefer tumbled, I don't like the feel of rough stones, thinking about it is giving me duck skin... I don't do anything rough.

  • Haha... That sounded dirty, I meant I don't like rough feeling items - rocks, sand, bark... yadda yadda...

  • I have some of both but I probably prefer the feel of tumbled better.
    My fav is probably my clear quartzes(they are not tumbled tho).

  • I love quartz because there are so many colors to choose from. And the stone is very sympatico with the vibrations of the human body.

  • It just depends on how I feel about it. Sometime I prefer rough/ natural stones, but I had a weakness for a blue quartz orb. Thinking I might need a cherry quartz point. Haven't decided yet. depends on it's purpose.
