My family and I collected these pebbles during our vacation at the Baltic Sea. Most of them are flintstone, a mineral that is also called ‘steal of the Stone Age’ as our ancestors shaped weapons and tools from it, and you can still find arrowheads, scrapers, flakes, or blades there. It is hard to tell apart naturally broken stone from an ancient tool, but I love the idea that these stones could have been shaped by humans a long time ago.
