Ask me which is more painful!
Link? I didn’t see it.
This was a double dose of unexpected discovery. While rehabilitating after my hip replacement, I been cruising the local internet classified site. Found a bad picture of a stack of stones. Asked for a picture and was a bunch of junk except for a wood box. “What in the box” I ask and received this picture. 1st unexpected discovery

Yeaaaaaaaaaah, I think I will take that. Some negotiations and the package arrived today. Unpacked, looked like a typical 6” stone, not bad, nothing special, I do something with it. Outside to the lapping table we go. Start out and realize it is already very flat, cool, low mileage. Lap I bit more, first rinse, what do we got here??!!?!

Holly Crap On A Cracker! Second unexpected discovery. Glad I stopped, I feel like a goon but had no idea it was there. Double checked the before picture and no sign of a stamp. Unfortunately I can not read anything, but a saved some of the stamp. On a side note, put out in the sun to dry off and it is one of the more sparkly stones I had I a while. The garnet are poking there head up into the Florida sun. Glad to be out of the dark box
