Stones are minerals in solid form. Depending on their characteristics stones are categorized into three groups: metamorphic, sedimentary, and igneous stones.
Metamorphic stones are created by a process of transformation, when stones are exposed to large pressures and temperatures that cause them to transform into another stone. Sedimentary stones are created by a process of transforming sediment into stones. Igneous stones are created by magma cooling in the Earth’s crust, or lava cooling on the ground.
Stones are everywhere and they represent a common part of our reality. Some stones have a special value due to their rarity or special qualities. They are precious and semiprecious stones, usually used as decorative items or as jewelry.
Being such common, stones are often in our dreams as well. Especially people who are fond of stones (like people who are into crystals or love them as jewelry pieces) tend to dream about stones often.
