Nordstrom has sold out of what could be the most stupid Holiday gift 2016 - a leather wrapped rock.

Nordstrom made headlines last week selling a stone wrapped in leather for $85. The leather wrapped rock, made by Made Solid, has sold out online. Jimmy Fallon was though able to get a leather wrapped rock for The Rock aka Dwayne Johnson.

He did not just got the small stone, but a special big rock wrapped in leather. Watch the sexiest man alive get not one but two rocks wrapped in leather.

I wonder what he will do with these. These leather wrapped rocks raised quite some attention. They are proof that anything can be sold with good marketing. Even rocks.

The description of the Leather wrapped stone on Nordstrom's online shop reads "A paperweight? A conversation piece? A work of art? It's up to you, but this smooth Los Angeles-area stone—wrapped in rich, vegetable-tanned American leather secured by sturdy contrast backstitching—is sure to draw attention wherever it rests.

A traditional hardening process gives the leather a beautiful ombré effect. Like all Made Solid leather pieces, this one is cut, shaped, sewn and finished by hand in artist Peter Maxwell's Los Angeles studio. Using vintage leatherworking tools and traditional saddle-stitching techniques, Maxwell aims to create beautiful designs that embody both simplicity and functionality, and that develop rich character and patina over time."
