“These stones were considered outcasts, rejected by their extractors and cast aside. They have since been broken, assembled, and placed with each other.
The conversation among them reminds us that sometimes damage is what makes us whole and connects us to precious people and things in this world. Stones speak to us and if you listen closely you might hear their stories.“
