|Tiny Stranger (3 x 2.5 cm)|
I've gotten into the habit of looking for interesting rocks whenever I'm outside waiting for a client. Usually what catches my eye is an unusually pure blue, red or black one, a stone with stripes, uniformly round or clear quartz. Most of those I've accumulated are of long forgotten origins.
I'm not a geologist, so I can't say much about it. The surface is textured such that that it could a piece of coral. I've examined the surface with a loupe and found no patterns anywhere. There is one interuption of its curvature by a small round, raised area, but that offers no clue either.
It doesn't matter what it is or where I got it. For a while it belongs to me. It's unlikely that whomever might one day search through my things will see it and think, "I want this." Most likely, without me, it'll be added back to the Earth, but for now, this finely rounded lump of whatever is one of my little priceless pets.
