Question regarding SIZE of stones Empty Question regarding SIZE of stones

I am hoping to start some good discussion with this topic. Recently I posted a few photos of a new stone & requested advice and input. I received some informative comments which answered several questions, but also inspired more.

My question is with regard to size. It was stated that smaller stones are often not appreciated in the same fashion as other larger stones. Several good examples were provided and it was an informative post. Now, I am not debating this information only trying to understand it better.

I visited this website & browsed to the suiseki link to the left and found some great examples of object and landscape stones which are pretty small...often smaller in length than a ballpoint pen. Some of these are what I consider pretty nice & are capable of being appreciated as a landscape despite the relatively small size.

A couple examples of many below, Thanks for your input!!
