A & B: Two stones used as musical instruments to accompany the Hula dance. The stones are round and flat, painted black and varnished. They are held by the dancer in one hand and struck together to make a rhythmic sound, similar to castanets. They are called Ili'ili in Hawaiian. C: Smaller version of A and B, but has no mate.
