Two unavoidable websites in English for the first, in English and German for the second :
1 – that of Andrew Van Ginkel in South Africa = flowering stones
Six parts dealing with morphology, history of discovery, geographical distribution, culture, description of the species (linked to a photo gallery borrowed essentially from Rafael Matysiuk who borrowed them from Uwe Beyer !) and links and related works.
Andrew animated a Lithops forum for a long time but is no longer running.
