Stone / Shikataganai
Item# 859

Shikataganai Talistones Throughout history, people of all cultures have valued beautiful stones and often used them as talismans or tokens. Let your inner guide make a selection, then carry it in your pocket or put it on your desk as a reminder of what it means to you. Shikataganai, a phrase often spoken by the Issei (first generation Japanese immigrants) means "It can't be helped." Even more than a phrase, Shikataganai was an attitude that shaped some Japanese Americans' responses to their World War II internment.

Stones are fashioned by nature and therefore differ in size, shape and color. Approximately 1-1/2" x 2-1/2".
