WHY ROCKS RULE
Rocks. They're everywhere!
You can't throw a rock in ANY direction and not have it land on either actual rock or something made of rock. We LIVE on a ROCK! So I think it's fair to say that Rocks are kind of a big deal.

Folks often refer to Rocks as inanimate objects lacking intelligence; rockhead, dumb as a box of rocks. Rock characters in books, comics and cartoons all spoke slowly, heavily, having little or no practical knowledge, just brute strength.
This could not be further from the truth!
Rocks Record Time. They are Geological Timekeepers.
One can't help but to feel a deep humility when standing in the presence of a canyon wall, especially while contemplating the almost inconceivable vastness of time on display in the rock strata.

We humans have long known the importance of Rocks. And that we place such high value on the prettiest, hardest, most useful among them. All of our roads and highways are built from rocks. Old high-rise buildings were constructed using rock in the form of cement bricks. I urge you to go down the rabbit-hole of all the many uses of Quartz Crystal!
So, yeah, Rocks Rule! Rock On, Feel Good!
