The upscale department store Nordstrom is selling a leather-wrapped rock for $85.

Their website suggests the rock be used as a paperweight, a conversation piece, or a work of art.

“It’s up to you,” the description reads. “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.”



Reviews of the product tend to be positive and have a 4.5 out of 5-star rating.

“I’m a member of an elite rock society, believe me, this rock was the envy of the evening,” one reviewer wrote. “I’ve witnessed the finest of rocks in my day, but this one.. best rock I’ve seen in over a fort night.”

Another said, “Nobody sits like this rock sits. You rock, rock.”

If $85 is a bit much for your bank account, the company also offers a smaller version for $65.
