And a very saw friendly shaped piece at that.  It should slice like cheese.  Congrats.

Will do...
We have never met each other...and are internet rock friends. Me in New Brunswick and him in Nova Scotia. We are a $100 round trip apart and neither has the money to make the trip.
He says that his saw equipment can't handle a rock that size, and will need to travel to a rock shop near him to cut it into manageable pieces.

I will keep y'all posted on it.

Spectacular piece and not very weathered so it could have been near more. An extremely thick vein.

Yeah, I'll mention that to him...I don't know if he made a 2nd trip yet...the weather was "warm" and sunny during that time, but a minor storm rolled in recently and covered everything with an 8" white blanket.
