SoapRocks — 'Fine soap in the form and color of rocks and gems'

Roseamethystuyy_2

Though they look just like stone they're actually glycerine soaps.

They were invented by conceptual artist Todd Pink, who one day happened to look at a bunch of soap scraps in his bathtub and decided to see what would happen if he squashed them all together into one big glob of soap that resembled a rock.

Seven years later, combining a lot of time and energy together with his background in art, geology and chemistry, SoapRocks were born.

A 6 oz. bar of any of 22 varieties, from amber citrine to watermelon tourmaline, costs $14.95 on Todd Pink's website.

Interestingly enough, the very same soaps are available here for half that price.

That's different: usually resellers charge more than the artisan or creator of a product.
