Nice shots Sven. Aren't rocks amazing?The unlimited colors and patterns always makes me wonder what they went through to get like that.

thanks Hiroshi and Don,
part of the history is known. The rocks were displaced by glaciers. Their original is in Scandinavia. Those with the rhomboid patterns are from swedish and norwegian vulcanos (long time ago). They were "sanded" on a danish beach in a specific zone where pebbles lie on silicate sands. Most of these stone have an oval shape, unlike round pebbles in rivers. These stones were hand picked to decorate my garden.
I would prefer some dark oval stones - seen in pictures from holy japanese gardens (kyoto?) - but we have to take....

thanks John and Francesco,
I need a recreation ofter all this amber!
There is lot of granite down here, but no ice at the moment!
In german we call these stones "Handschmeichler", they fit into our hands so perfectly.
