I love cutting stones in half and seeing what's inside. They are still the same stone, but now separated. I thought these are a nice symbol of a relationship separated...long distance relationship, death, parent separated from children. Each stone represents one relationship. Each member gets one half and keeps it and holds it as a reminder of that relationship until the two are reunited bringing the two halves together. Sappy? I like the idea anyway.
