When I first read of this stone, I immediately thought of my sister, Kelly, who is a teacher, and a singer song writer. I think being a true artist is the ability to convey outside, how you feel on the inside and allow others to connect to their own feelings and apply those to the music. In my mind, every artist needs a piece of this, and when I find some...my sister will have it as she continues to entertain and connect with all of those who love her music. If you want to look her up, find Kelly Clements - 'Two Far Gone' on most social media pages.
