Where can I find real stones for Pente?
I want to asemble a Pente game with all natural materials. I have a leather game board and some leather bags that I made. I want to get polished stones and a tube to carry my game pieces in. Perhaps a penned rulebook would finish the set nicely. Any ideas?

Polished stones are easy to find. Just enter "Polished Stones" in Yahoo, and you'll get a few hundred rock shops, such as;
The problem here is that they're all somewhat odd shapes.
If you want them flat and round, like Go pieces, and don't mind shelling out a huge amount of money, there's a place that sells semi-precious Go stones that would work fine.

They're not stones per say, but I like those glass beads. They are usually called something like "accent stones". Alternatively, it's probably easiest to find high quality stones by looking at go sets.
