Womenwithtorch inspired me with her chrysoprase pendant to pull out a piece of Mtorolite (Zimbabwe Chrysoprase) today and I cut a cab. The slab was small and had an irregular shape so I ground off all of the crud and rough edges. So I guess this is the shape the stone wanted to be. Than I thought that I would drill a hole in it and hang it on a wire bail. My wife said it is shaped like leaf so now I am thinking about carving lines in it to look like a leaf. we will see if it continues to talk to me?
