Product Description
The fidget spinner craze has seemingly died down but there's still plenty to worry about.  

Whatever thoughts keeps you up at night, annoy you during the day, or vex your sensibilities during those in between times this modern version of the traditional worry stone might be just the thing to keep in your jacket pocket or on your desk to reach for when you need a little reassurance.  (That was a long sentence.)

The pattern on the top and bottom of these bubble baubles are derived from mathematical circle packing. In geometry, circle packing is the study of the arrangement of circles (of equal or varying sizes) on a given surface such that no overlapping occurs and so that all circles touch one another. If you've ever looked at soap suds or (actually) aimed while urinating you have seen natural examples of circle packing - or more precisely, sphere packing. 

The patterns of randomly sized circles on either side of these worry stones provides an interesting texture to rub with your thumb or pick at with your nails. They are little sculptures that fit in your pocket that serve a purpose. Here are some of them:  

1.  They are physically good for fidgeting with;
2. You can actually fidget with light and shadow (see one of the photos above, it's pretty fun to do);
3. They are all made with copper alloys so they are naturally anti-microbial (see below);
4. They are little pieces of art that exist for the sake of existing, that's something too!


They are pricier than supermarket fidget spinners but the materials are high quality and will last you for ages.  You will probably be able to pass them on to your grandkids if you wanted.  (Or just give one to them as a present).

Thanks for looking.

More on the anti-microbial nature of copper:

The surfaces of copper and its alloys, such as brass and bronze, are antimicrobial. They have an inherent ability to kill a wide range of harmful microbes relatively rapidly – often within two hours or less – and with a high degree of efficiency. These antimicrobial properties have been demonstrated by an extensive body of research. The research also suggests that if touch surfaces are made with copper alloys, the reduced transmission of disease-causing organisms can reduce patient infections in hospital intensive care units (ICU) by as much as 58%.
