Drinking out of a cup made from stone might sound like something out of The Flintstones at first. But the makers of The Stone Cup are extremely adamant that their masterpiece is anything but primitive, describing it on Kickstarter as “the most refined drinking experience of all time,” among other things.
The Stone Cup is crafted from metamorphic rock found underneath the surface of the Earth — the same kind of rock that naturally filters delicious spring water, which is how the idea to make drinking glasses out of it came up. The rock keeps hot liquids hot and cold liquids cold, and also allows whatever your beverage of choice may be to be enjoyed in its purest possible flavor.
More than 1,200 people have been intrigued enough by The Stone Cup to back it on Kickstarter here, where you have another five days to pre-order yours starting at just under $50.
