I always like to see his cabs that are not symmetrical like this one.  I second Itsandbits comment about the translucency he achieved at the edges.

Sweet. Did you balance it on something to figure out where to drill the hole to get it to hang straight?

I now know where.
You can quote me on this, I have the scar.

Gergis used a magic marker to mark the hole and I put it where he wanted it. We use calipers at times also to even up the stone after it was drilled.
