These are called "stones", but beyond that they are beyond me. Anyone know anything about them? Anyone wanna buy them?

I think Faces used to make something like that - or were they Gems. Maybe ask Ian Parsons. Apologies if I'm way off.

Update from Chris Tan: "I think the micro wires are Wild Country Stones, from 1989. With the introduction of the EU's PPE directives, they were taken off the market. I guess they're pretty rare."

Yes, they're Wild Country Stones. I have 3 that I still use.

I used to have a load of these, they didn't seem to fit in anywhere apart from Millstone peg cracks. Too tapered?
