There is one type of fidget that predates the existence of even fidget spinners - it’s called the worry stone. A worry stone is usually a smooth rock or gemstone that may be as small as a thumbprint or as large as the palm of your hand.
According to the principles of cognitive behavior therapy, a worry stone helps support meditation and self-soothing exercises. Worry stones help counteract negative comforting habits like nail or lip biting, pulling your hair, or picking at a scab or something else on your skin.
Gently move your thumb back and forth over the surface of the worry stone while focusing on a positive affirmation. This act, although so simple, will help release physical tension, ease worries and anxieties. After a few minutes, you should feel a sense of calm and renewed focus on the task at hand.
As these are manufactured from natural crystal or stone, they may have slight imperfections or differ slightly from the images.

Excellent for calming, especially in exams
I like the shape, it fits comfortably in my adult female hand and my thumb moves on it very smoothly. No rough bits at all. Only thing is it's maybe a little pricey for what it is, but I do enjoy it. I bought the rose quartz and it is a very calming colour.
