Versatile StonesThe outstanding abrasive properties of natural volcanic pumice have been recorded since ancient Roman times. No doubt stones used earlier by rock-savvy cavemen.
Ward's sustainably harvested pumice is kept exactly the way nature made it. It's true grit, that venerable scrubbing stone whose abrasive properties pumice-adulterating companies can only aspire to. Why not upgrade organic body care line to offer discerning nature-loving customers the real thing?
Body care users of reformed pumice often complain of scrubbing arm going numb working calluses and of product disintegrating in water. Not so with these puppies; they're heavy-duty. They sacrifice themselves slowly. Well cared-for stones can last for years.
"... I couldn't be more pleased! I
ordered the 11 lb of medium shop grade stones. The web page estimated 60-80
stones, and I got 100 stones. - Chelsea Cox, Las Vegas, NV
Born of Fire
These pumice were rounded not by any efforts of man but aerodynamically by nature on eruption. Formerly under enormous pressure, trapped gases in frothy molten lava globules, flung miles high, make bubbly escape, creating new-born foamy stones by fast-drying into rounded form by time they hit earth -- or almost dry, often flattening into eggs or oval bars or, very rare, pancakes. Stream action might further shape.
People are amazed by roundedness, assuming stones must be worked by man. Not so; nature's sole sculptor of this volcanic popcorn.
As bonus, every working stone doubles as centuries-old specimen of California's majestic Mount Shasta, officially designated sister mountain to Japan's Mount Fuji and noted world over for its majesty and believed powerful metaphysical properties. Stones might effectively be actual fiery souvenirs of United States' first fireworks celebration, mountain's last eruption thought late 1700s, around time of nation's birth.

June Inventory & Rationing Report
With fitfully nice Spring weather, have been fitfully searching for stones missed in bi-annual mop-up phase before and after seasonal creek stops running and sending down embarrassment of new stones. With hundreds of acres of alluvial-fan deposit lands plus miles of actual creek bed to comb over, it's never-ending Easter egg hunt for kid at heart.
Good precipitation this year -- Eight-year California drought's officially over -- and this summer's harvest looks promising. More snowpack on mountain means more stones washing down with daily snowmelt.
By early July harvesting starts again in earnest, melt creating strong creek flow, flushing down new daily crops. Sometimes melting ice dam high on mountain finally gives way and giant deposits sent roaring down amid sea of silt and rubble. Working with nature's a trip.
