CAUTION: Do not even think of taking rocks, sands, shells or anything else you find in nature from the Big Island. Everything in Hawaii’s beautiful nature is an ancestor of the Hawaiian people. If you still feel compelled to take from Hawaii’s nature, as a result, the consequences will be of your doing…..
