rocks rock!


I found these rocks on the beach in the Olympic Peninsula.  I was flipping out about the round rocks.  They are just mysterious in how round they are.  The rocks in the back were ones tracy collected to use in some "man" jewelry he's been making lately.  They have holes that go all the way through.

  2. Those round rocks could mean the beach/water area they were in was very had a very rough surf and they were rolled around a lot, for a long time! The ones with the holes are pretty cool!

  12. smooth rocks like that are really fun to draw designs on with black sharpie or pitt pens...if you can bare to draw over their own natural beauty, it looks really cool!

  14. As a kid, if we found a rock with a hole all the way through it became a friendship rock.

  18. Cool rocks! Did you know that if you carry rocks around in your pockets for months they will become smooth and shiny as tho they have been tumbled? I found this out by accident when I carried some favorite rocks around for awhile. Of course you need more than one rock so they tumble against each other. Now I always carry rocks in my pocket. I guess I'm a little weird.

  19. I just love these round rocks! I am also very interested to see what Tracy is doing with the other rocks -- I collect stones with holes in them. I have them from many places that I have traveled (the hole is an easy way to attach a tag -- I just thought of this recently, even though I have collected stones with holes for nearly 40 years!

  22. What a great collection! I bet it's fun to just roll those round rocks around in your hands!

  23. Teesha you have found my beach. Did your feet hurt from walking on all the round and roundish rocks? Did you also find knobby finger type rocks? I'll email you a picture of some of the rounds we have found. I know a great Oregon beach that has had smooth dark rocks with holes. It is near Lincoln City if you ever head in that direction.

  24. Amazing rocks !!! I have a thing for rocks big time. I found a nice round one similar to yours here on the beaches in New Hampshire. Took my white Elmer's paint pen ultra fine tip and wrote "a round to it" on it, then coated it with some Modpodge in high gloss. Gave it to the hubby so he can't put things off until he gets "a round to it" any more ! ;)

  25. I come home from trips with boxes of rocks!!!! THese are wonderful.
    As these are probably volcanic in origin, they may be geodes. Have you considered cracking one to see if there are treasures within??? Might be hard to do I know but kind of exciting too!!! I ahve been to the beach in lincoln Oregon- ultra smooth blacker than black stones. It will be fun to see what your husband does with his holey stones!!!

    Best,

  26. Love this...reminds me of a family getaway when we found lots of round rocks...used them for "bowling", lol, and then I brought some of them home and have them in a big bowl...smile everytime I notice them again.

  27. Funnily l collect round stones to but l use them in my Counselling with clients. I let them pick one and that stone becomes their "grounding" stone and they can decorate it if they like. They keep it in their pocket and when nervous hold it and steady their thpoughts. It can be private because they are usually small or it can be seen if they feel safe. A few of them have holes in and one or two of my teenagers have taken to hanging them on rope/thread and hanging them round their necks.xxlynda

  28. hi teesha,

    my eyes light up at the sight of these... : ) i've collected rocks on this beach, and i was told that the round ones are called concretions. there is a little something in the center of each one. i only cracked one open and there was a small crab claw in there...

    and the holey rocks - oh! they're something aren't they?

    Love the round rocks! I go to Michigan every summer and the beach is loaded with small rocks with perfect holes in them. Made necklaces with the grandkids and have a collection in the house along with heart rocks from the beach too!

  30. I've never seen such perfectly round rocks before. In some cultures stones with holes that go all the way through are considered to be spiritually powerful. To have so many is a great blessing!

    What is the name of this beach with round rocks?

  37. I found some rocks with holes on the beach in Oregon along the water edge too. I believe it was on the beach where the sign said the shortest river.
