Shaped by Fire and Water

I've been looking at the lava stones I gathered in Iceland and the Baltic amber from Finland.  And I've been thinking about how they are shaped by fire (lava) and water (Baltic amber).  I'm finding this a mixture of exciting and fascinating.

I have some jade from Monterey that comes from the ocean and is shaped by the water.  It's a lovely soft green.  And I have some soft blue white beach glass that Nalo Hopkinson gave me.

I have them spread out on a table and I'm thinking about designs and what it means to work with stones that are shaped by the elements.
