Well this just made my little calligrapher's heart sing. (It's Suzanne here with the singing heart) Vinyl is amazing. It holds such fine detail! Why would I ever try to directly letter on a rock? Especially one this small. Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas next year? You guessed it. Rocks!
I used Silhouette white vinyl on the Cameo. I shrunk/shrank/reduced the lettering to between 1 and 2 inches. I placed a small piece of vinyl on the cutting mat and set the blade depth to 1 (the vinyl setting) and cut. After weeding out the excess vinyl from the negative spaces, I used the Premium Transfer paper to transfer the cut vinyl to the rocks.
Here are the files I used (and wow, you get Italic, Foundational and Modern Pointed Pen):

Serenity, Smile, Welcome Home and more! And I need to design some more!
I tell you, I could go on and on and on. But I need more rocks.....
I hope this gives you some ideas for decorating your own rocks. You know you want to try it.
Thanks for dropping by. Happy cutting, Suzanne
