I was digging though some of my old collection of rough and found a chunk I cut this piece out of.
This is stuff from 40 years back and I am not sure of the exact origin of the rough but it sure cut a nice cab.

It's a beautiful material and a very lovely shape! (So's the stuff behind it.)

That would be a chunk of Deer Sky in the background...
