If you want to find a great supply for these rocks in attractive
styles, see if you have a local Pier One Imports and ask for
Chinese Lucky Stones. These are 1 kilo (2.2 pounds) of polished
river stones in a little mesh bag. Cleaned, polished and attractive
for about $3 a bag. The stone range in the 1/2" to 3/4" thick range
and Mark is right...they are perfect for drilling and attaching plants
