A Connemara Marble Worry Stone is a highly polished oval shaped stone which is flat on one side and concave on the other. The belief is that if you rub the hollow part with your thumb that the marble will absorb your worries and take them away.
The piece is approx 2 inches by 1 1/2 inches and 1/4 inch deep. It comes in a presentation pack with the "Why Worry?" verse. The verse states that
"In life there are only two things to worry about, Either you are well or you are sick, If you are well there is nothing to worry about, But if you are sick there are only two things to worry about, Either you get well or you will die, If you get well then there is nothing to worry about, If you die there are only two things to worry about, Either you go up or you go down, If you go up there is nothing to worry about, If you go down you will be so busy shaking hands with old friends you won't have time to worry"
The verse is printed on the back of the presentation pack and will give a smile to the receiver.
