from the Stone Works Picks web site
StoneWorks is a mix of my life long personal interest and coincidence. First is music, I’m a guitar, bass, and banjo player. Second is rocks, I love all rocks, geodes, fossils, and turquoise. The coincidence, my last name is Stone.
I live on a small farm outside Dallas City, IL on the banks of the Mississippi River. When my kids were younger a typical summer weekend included walking the local creeks looking for fossils, geodes, and arrowheads. That hobby lead me to the question “Whats next?” so I decided to learn everything I could about semi precious stones, geology, and lapidary processes. I bought lapidary equipment and began cutting stones.

from the Kradl Guitar Picks and Accessories web site
These don‘t seem to be available anymore and are great picks - especially for younger students. They really re-enforced the proper holding of the pick. I’m down to my last one. And, that one I had to trade a stone pick to a student to get the Kradl pick back. - Curt

If you’ve never tried a Picks and Stones gemstone Guitar Pick you may be wondering “what’s so special about these things?” Only a first hand experience can completely satisfy your curiousity but we can do our best to explain as much as possible for you here. But if it’s all just words to you then feel free to listen to some MP3s and let the Picks speak for themselves. “I’ve had several stones picks over the years (since 1978) and Picks and Stones offers the widest ranges of sizes and shapes. These are some good looking picks. I’ll have to get a few of these.
These are works of art let alone a functional guitar pick.” - **Curt Sheller**
