Tumbled stones are pieces of rock and different minerals that have been tumbled to produce smooth rounded and highly polished stones. The process begins by placing rough stones of a similar size into a rock tumbler. The barrel is then filled with water, sand, coarse grit and various polishing agents to create a smooth surface on the polished gemstone.
Tumbled stones can be used in many ways - lucky stones, vase filler, decorations, ground cover, accents in potted plants, game markers, making jewelry and much more..
