From Water to Fire

Some people become accountants, others teachers, but Jeff Henderson was called to his profession by something the rest of us have probably walked right past: Rocks. He sources these naturally rounded, one-of-a-kind stones from coastal New England, and breathes new purpose into them, like with his stunning match striker. Swipe a strike-anywhere match against the coastal accent to light your favorite candle or to start a cozy fire. It makes a thoughtful gift for sea-craving friends and anyone you know who'd rather be at the beach. Handmade in Maine.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

    You just strike the match on the stone and then light the candle. The stone holds matches as well and looks great on the coffee table.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Beach Stone Match Striker:

      This item works well. You definitely must use the matches with the phosphorus tip. This is the only way it will light when you strike the rock. Pleasantly surprised that it WORKS! :)

      Comments about UncommonGoods Beach Stone Match Striker:

      It was meant for match holder and striker. But the hole is too deep for the matches. We also purchased three different types of matches and it doesn't work striking the match against the stone. No sparkle, no fire.
