    I have a few from a different manufacturer and they are a very interesting product, not something I use all the time, but for some styles, and some guitars, they work quite well.

    Stone Works picks have just started appearing over here. I've resisted (the price) so far though.
    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

    I have a couple of agate picks. They feel nice in the hand, but they make a kind of chirping noise when they contact the strings that I don't care for at all. Personally, I prefer bone picks.

    Right on, Chris, I feel the same way about the agate picks that I have. They seem to get all clickety-clack 'n stuff, unless your technique is perfect (and mine isn't). I found some online somewhere that were made of horns, and those are almost (to my ear) like the old tortoise shell picks (yeah, the ones you can't own anymore). The horn picks are actually quite pretty, and sound smooth, vibrant and warm.

    One cool thing I've found - if you go along the string (instead of across it like regular picking) in short touches, the chirping sound sounds a lot like seagulls, especially with some echo added.
