Pyrite in quartz
« on: September 08, 2019, 08:06:54 PM »

I picked up a 12” lapidary chop saw at an estate sale yesterday. It still had a rock clamped in the vice with about 8 slabs. It was just a dirty greasy rock. But I gave it a bath anyway and cut this cab

Very nice piece it's a shame it's not the good yellow stuff that would have been a win. Dave

That's a beautiful cab, Jhon!  Even better because it was a surprise.
