I became fascinated with the crystalline realm at a very young age. My childhood fascination was the "vein" of crystals in the forest near my home in Pennsylvania's Pocono mountains. I knew I wanted to spend my life working with these amazing models of perfection created by nature. When I was 18 I started my career as a jewelry designer and craftsman, and my focus has consistently been on going where no one else has gone, pushing the limits and allowing my creativity to take the wheel. When I bought a bag of tumbled stone chips and found one to be shaped just like a guitar pick, the wheels in my head started turning, I knew I was on to something. But the polished rounded edge slid of the guitar strings in an awkward way, there was no precision control. So I took it to the grinding wheel and after experimenting with various different materials and designs, I eventually honed in on my hallmark design, a carefully shaped pick with just the right contour that allows for precision picking.

    The giftee said "Your most unique and appreciated gift arrived today. What a surprise. I'd heard of stone pics but never have seen one. This thing has a very unique feel and tone. Kinda shimmery, silvery like. Hard to describe but verrrrrry different from standard plastic or other polymer type pics. I LIKE IT!!!

      Loved this piece! But I'm not a guitarist and didn't realize that the pick would be a little too thick for the guitar my friend plays.

      This pick has a gorgeous luster and rich color. The tip is filed down, adding a little texture that brings a rich sound out of the strings!

      Comments about UncommonGoods Agate Guitar Picks:

      Awesome product for someone who plays a guitar, I was a little taken back to see the color of the product. It showed a lot of striatum a in the picture but when received it was solid green with little variation in color.

      a dull, cloudy lavender -- not at all like the photo

      By 

      from Fremont, CA

      Comments about UncommonGoods Agate Guitar Picks:

      I play steel-string acoustic guitar, and I'm sure my friend (not a musician) thought this would be a special gift. It sounds terrible on one guitar and okay on another. It's strange to have such a thick pick; fortunately, the edges are filed down nicely or it would be unusable. But there's no way this is as attractive as the one in the photo. Disappointing.

      Does the maker play at all? I doubt it. Stone is just not a suitable material for acoustic guitar picks. Electric, maybe, I wouldn't know.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Agate Guitar Picks:

        I bought this guitar pick for my boyfriend who loves both crystals and guitar. I didn't look too much into it before I purchased it - I sort of did it impulsively because I thought it looked right up his alley. Judging from the picture, I thought there would be more than one pick included, however, there was only one. This isn't at all the company's pitfall, but rather my own impulse. :) Just wanted to note that in case someone else believes there will be more than one pick in the package.

        Other than my own impulsive lack of attention to order details, it's absolutely beautiful. The one I received has a fantastic, geode-like crystalline formation right in the center. I didn't expect that at all, and it's incredibly lovely. I'm very, very excited to hear how it sounds being played.
