Imagine the polished / unpolished rocks and stones that people use to decorate their homes and gardens.
Are they a renewable resource? Are there plenty of them?
If we give 200 pounds of them to each human being alive, would we run out?

No, I think you already know this but Rocks are not a renewable resource. Just because there are a 'lot' of rocks does not mean it is renewable [e.g There are lots of coal here], Rocks come in a limited amount here on Earth. Are Rocks Renewable?
Oh and Yes, It is possible to give 7 billion people 200 pounds of rock each considering the fact that 65 percent of the Earth is made up of Ingenious rocks and 66% is made of basalt, etc. Im 100% sure we can supply 7 Billion Humans with a 200 pound rock
