I was so sure this would be the perfect gift for my nephew. I understand it is handmade and they all look different as agates do. Unfortunately, the one I received has edges that are not smooth so I am not clear on how it will work on a guitar string without catching. Had I seen this in a store I would have never chosen it. It looks cheap, not "cool" like I had hoped. Usually very happy with UG purchases but not this time.
My friend loves these guitar picks.

The product I received looked like no effort was put into it. It looks nothing at all like the beautiful picture. The purple is much, much darker. The edges of the pick are hideous and not smooth like in the picture. I am disgusted that they mislead me to buy a cheap and gruesome product like this. Maybe if I got what was advertised, this would be a whole different review.
Just a lovely simple and elegant agate pic that proved the perfect gift for a budding guitarist.
I bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas since he is a musician who happens to love gemstones and rocks, so this was a big hit. He is afraid to play his guitar with it though since he doesn't want to damage it, so for now, it's something to show off.

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!!!
arrived quickly, its a little pricey but won't break easily like some pics do...i like it..
the mellow one
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.
It was just fun to have a different kind of gift that was nice looking and useful
