Flint stones are the least interesting of the four kinds of gray stones, having no special powers or abilities. Their distinguishing feature is that they do 1d6 damage against small and large enemies when slung, instead of the 1d3 dealt by other gems and stones.
Theoretically, eating a non-cursed flint stone would display the message "Yabba-dabba delicious!" and exercise your constitution. However, since no monster in the game is lithivorous (able to eat stones), this point is moot outside of variants. The message is a reference to the TV series The Flintstones, and to the Flintstones brand of children's vitamin tablets.
An emerald is as green as grass;
A ruby red as blood;
A sapphire shines as blue as heaven;
A flint lies in the mud.
A diamond is a brilliant stone,
To catch the world's desire;
An opal holds a fiery spark;
But a flint holds fire.
