An emphatic affirmation for a special friend: “You rock.” This rocking rock is hand-carved palewa soapstone from India. It’s a great paperweight and a fun conversation piece. Palewa soapstone, sourced in Agra, India, is well-known as a carving soapstone. It comes in shades of green, gray and tan, which darken when polished.
