The Hypnosis Stone

My son had a school field trip yesterday, where he got to "mine" gemstones and learn about them.  He came home with a bag full of assorted blue, green, red, and purple gems. He dumped them out on the kitchen table.  "Mama, which is your favorite?"

I took a look and picked up an aqua-colored stone.  "This one."

"Do you know which one is my favorite?"

"No, Bubba.  Which one is your favorite?"

He picked up a topaz-colored rock with brown stripes.  "Take a look at this one."  He held it in front of my face and slowly moved it across my line of vision. The stone was like a holographic image. As he moved it, the pattern on the surface of the stone seemed to change. "It's a tiger's eye," he explained. "Do you know why I like it?"

"Because it's fancy?" I asked.

He nodded.  "And because I can use it to hypnotize you!"

    1. My kids had a rock tumbler, but it made so much noise, my husband made them get rid of it.

    1. Yes. I'm sure that he'll end up with more cookies, more candy, and more money because of that stone!
