How Tight Is Your Hema?

Keep your magnetic hematite. Keep it tight! And keep it close because word on the street is, it has potential healing powers, or at least the ability to possibly-maybe boost your mood. At the very least, the specimens we have are great for the fridge or the side of a file cabinet. They have a super-stylish and refined shiny-pewter look, and they’re each about 3/4" to 7/8" x 1/2" thick. Plus, they look super-cool in bunches. Takes about (25) of them to weigh 1 lb, and you’ll get a dozen per order. Never hurts to have some nice, small reliable magnets hanging around--especially these, which won’t lose their pull in your lifetime.

We Sell Sea Shells

Without making you go to the seashore. Our each is a 3” dia x 6-1/2” tall clear glass jar full of sea shells. You might get periwinkles, what look like augers, or sea snails. (We're freshwater folk here in Chicago, so we're kind of shell-estimating, but we’re sure they’re awfully pretty.) Number depends on size, but you’ll get 15-20 oz of shells, in a jar officially marked “Assorted.” Jars are stoppered with big corks with a little charming raffia around the neck.
