Heart-Shaped Rocks



This is my little collection of heart-shaped rocks.
It's pretty cool. I've been collecting these for many years. It's not something I'm fanatical about, as you can see by the small number of them. I started out with two (I found the big one first and that's what got me started) that I found during a picnic the boys and I were on back when Drew was barely walking. Since then, I find one just every now and then. Daniel and Drew have each stumbled onto one and brought it to me over the years, which makes those really special. There's not many things that could get any sweeter than having your son bring you a heart-shaped rock. I recommend heart-shaped rock collections to all mothers and fathers.

love and grace,

So cool! I have a few too, and picked up a heart-shaped chunk of amethyst this year too. Thanks for sharing your collection. So glad you got the camera!

VERY cool. Funny 'cause someone gave me a heart-shaped stone the other day. My first!

Way to use that camera!

I collect tiny ceramic shoes. Two of them came from an antique shop in the strip mall on Tropicana Avenue in Las Vegas that houses the Liberace Museum. Oooo. Now we need to find you a heart shaped rock from Las Vegas.

Christine: We need to get sister's kids to start searching for these. Granted, when they are very very young, they tend to see hearts in rocks where there..uh...may be no physical rendering of a heart.

Peterson: That's so awesome that you have a beginning! Now...if you were REALLY my friend (cause real friends have "conditions" you know...) you'd bring me a heart-shaped rock from Scotland!!! ;)

Kurt: OH...how sweet! You need to do a photo collection of those. I want to see them. I'd like a heart-shaped rock from Vegas...as long as it was a REAL rock and not some fakey rhinestoney flourescent lighty wedding chapelish money laundering looking stage show sort of excuse for a rock.

I've never been to Vegas. Can you see why? I have some predisposed judgements about it. shame on me!!!

love ya!

I had a small collection of heart rocks as well. I gave them away but it is nice to see others have collected them, too.

My wife found a "Cheeto" that looks like a seahorse. Sorry, our digital camera is out of commission or I would send you a picture.

We have a collection of rocks that dates back to the summer before we were married way back in '79. Early on, the kids thought I was kinda' goofy for collecting them. Now, they still think I'm goofy, but they treasure our special rocks, which are prominently displayed on our front porch.

Wonderful collection of 'heart rocks'! Glad to meet another collector who appreciates the simple pleasures of discovering and/or receiving a heart-shaped rock.

I started a blog especially for people who to share their heart rock stories. Would you mind if I added a link to this post to the site?

The site is The Heart Rock Collective
