Tumble stones are crystals that have been polished by turning in a large drum with water and a grinding or polishing powder. This results in a smooth and tactile stone that is enticing to touch and hold and often has an increased radiance and beauty compared to its natural form.
Tumble stones are usually an ideal size to keep in your pocket or in a pouch and for placing on or around the body during crystal healing.
Our tumble stones are priced by weight, clicking on the picture will take you to a page that gives the size and weight for each tumble. For a summary of sizes and weights please see our tumble stone size guide page.
