There are some suggested guidelines for what to do with your stone, but of course, in the end, it is all your choice!

We would love to meet you and hear what you think of your find.  Post a photo of your stone: a selfie with mysterystone, a mysterystone still-life, or your own creative inspiration.  Share your thoughts and insights, a poem, a story.  It’s all up to you. 

**Just remember, always include your stone number with your post.**

Ways to post: Brilliant Stranger on Facebook. Or post a photo to instagram with #mysterystones.

If you are not on Facebook or Instagram you can also email your photos and ideas to info@brilliantstranger.com  I will make a post for you.

Please keep your stone in the Mystery Stone project by eventually letting go of your stone.  What?!?!?!  Give away my new treasure???  It’s ok, this is entirely up to you, the how, the when and the where.  

The simple idea behind this project is that nothing in life is permanant.  When we embrace the moment and let go, rather than holding on, mysteries and miracles occur. You can do what I did and leave it somewhere public and leave it to chance, you can give it to a friend as a gift, you can give it to a stranger and see the surprise on their face, you can put it in the mail and send it to a long lost family member…. the possibilities are as vast as your imagination.

And don’t worry if you’re not ready, we hope to be here for a long time, so release your stone when you feel like letting go!

 #Repost from @crystal_hellfire with @repostapp --- My coworker found a mystery stone at the beach and gifted it to me! I love it so much! She said "when I saw it I immediately thought of you and it is a gift to both of us" because I think she is a very giving and kind soul.  #549 of #brilliantstranger's #mysterystones #brilliantstranger #whogetsit #wherewillitgonext ..
