No One Knows WTF To Think About This $85 Rock In A Leather Pouch At Nordstrom

Christmas is right around the corner.

If you’re looking for something to give all of the naughty people on your shopping list, you could load up some Christmas stockings with lumps of coal.

Or you can take a more creative approach to your gifting by swapping out the passé coal for a unique gift that rocks. Literally.

Yep, it appears you can now buy a stylish $85 rock in a leather pouch at Nordstrom.

No, really, I’m not kidding. Nordstrom is legit selling a fancy rock in a chic leather sheath from Made Solid and all I have to say is I think I have officially lost all faith in humanity.

Now, you’re probably wondering, what the hell is one supposed to do with an expensive rock in a pouch?

Well, Nordstrom writes,

A paperweight? A conversation piece? A work of art? It’s up to you, but this smooth Los Angeles-area stone—wrapped in rich, vegetable-tanned American leather secured by sturdy contrast whipstitching— is sure to draw attention wherever it rests.

Nordstrom also provides insight on the superb craftsmanship of the piece in the product details, stating,

A traditional hardening process gives the leather a beautiful ombré effect. Like all Made Solid pieces, this one is cut, shaped, sewn and finished by hand in artist Peter Maxwell’s Los Angeles studio.

Using vintage leatherworking tools and traditional saddle-stitching techniques, Maxwell aims to create beautiful designs that embody both simplicity and functionality, and that develop rich character and patina over time.

As you can imagine, people are pretty confused about this stony statement piece.
