TRUE TOUCH STONES
Touch Stones or "Palm stones" are blanket terms. There are many types of touch stones: thumb stones, worry stones, gallets, palm stones, and pocket stones. They each have specific features, but sometimes in the market the names can be interchanged, and it can get a little confusing, so I’m going to go over them and give my personal classification of each.
Thumb/worry stones are smaller in size and sometimes have an indent on one side to place your thumb. Palm stones are equal in size and proportion. They can be circular or oval shaped and small enough to fit in the average hand size.
Gallets are bigger in size, they are usually more circular and chunky because they stay true to the nature of the material when it was found and less is carved away. Finally, Touch Stones are extra large palm stones, sometimes almost like a freeform.
Palm Stones are perfect to hold during meditation due to their size. Personally this is one of my all time favorite crystal shapes to purchase due to their accessibility and affordable price.
Fidgeting device. Worry stones provide you with something to keep your hands busy or help you to focus and stay grounded.
Keep one in your pocket or bag. I love to pick out a different palm stone I’m drawn to each day to take with me wherever I’m going. That’s another reason why I love palm stones, they are small enough to throw in your bag or pocket and go (although I have to admit I do sometimes like to bring tiny clusters or spheres with me)!
