I have a couple of sets myself. One set is pebble the other quartz.

I like these though, but i am going to nick your idea and make them myself out of clay :)

I suppose it's the clay that's used and how chunky the runes are, I'll be making some this week as i've got a few pots and figures that need to be fired too.

The only problem with something as small as rune stones is finding them amounst the coals and ashes when they're done.
