Hearts
Can be flat both sides, flat one side and curved the other, or "puff" - curved both sides. A traditional jewellery shape but now often used in as paperweights and ornaments.
Obelisks and Points
Obelisk. Has 4 sides of equal width but varying in height narrowing to the top with pyramid cuts on the points. Points. A crystal terminated on one end. However, on account of the rarity of perfect natural points, a lot are cut from larger pieces of crystal.
Pyramids
A classical shape with square base and 4 sides joining at the apex in the centre. The height of the pyramid may vary.
Shapes
This applies to any style where the stone is cut and ground to random shapes and sizes. This follows the natural shape of the stone or can be shape duplicated many times, but not copied exactly as in a calibrated shape.
Soapshapes
A smooth puff oval, rather like a flattened rugby ball. The convex ends form a continuous, flowing shape that is available in a variety of minerals and sizes.
Spheres
Perfect rounded stone not drilled, varying in size - 2cm to 20cm.
Thumb & Worry Stones
Also called "thinking stones" normally a flatish oval with one side curved in (worry stone) or with a dimple ground into one side to take the shape of a thumb. Normally carried in a pocket.
Wands
Virtually any shape cut to provide a comfortable holding grip and rounded end from where pressure is applied (in the case of a massage wand or point). Manufactured wands have facetted sides and a point with pyramid cut on the point with a dome base for massage.
