Worry stones are smooth, polished stones, usually in the shape of an oval with a thumb-sized indentation. They are often used by people for relaxation or anxiety relief purposes, the the same way as some people use a fidget spinner. Typically the worry stones are 1 1/2 to 2" across. They are may also be referred to as palm stones, thumb stone, fidget stones, etc.
This is polished dalmatian stone which is also commonly known as "dalmatian jasper". We refer to is as dalmatian stone due to the fact that it isn't a jasper at all, but is in fact an igneous rock composed of arfvedsonite, albite and quartz. It features black spots of arfvesonite that are surrounded by a mixture of white albite and quartz. It resembles the spotted hair/skin pattern of a Dalmatian dog, hence where it earned its name.
