Bargain of the day: blessed holy rock

How can you possibly go on without a pet rock, or more precisely A blessed Holy Rock!!!!?

This is a rock blessed by a Tibetan Holy Man, one of the things my friend acquired on his trip to Tibet. This is said to have magical powers, and will bless those who touch it. This is meant to be used for the forces of good, but legend has it that is can be used for evil.
The rock can be used in séances, (I used it quite often for séances around my cat), it can be a nice decoration, and can be used to bless things.
And for those of you who enjoy bureaucratic boasters, you can politely announce to your guests and say I have recently acquired an American rock that was blessed by a Tibetan Holy Man, and when you say that you will fill your guests with envy.

It is a very pretty little beach pebble, and must be utterly authentic - just look at the deep financial knowledge of the valuer:

According to my expert in pricing strange items or antiques, he informed a rock of this magnitude is worth 1,000 British Pounds, roughly 4,000 American dollars. To be generous, I think it will be more leveled to price it at 2,500 American dollars to start. You may bid all you like, so happy bidding.

Note: As of today, £1,000 is worth $1,609; $4,000 is £2,486.01

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
