Roundish End-Cut (Item S12)



The front side of this stone will be polished.  I like the back side almost as it is, but will require a mild acid-wash (photo below).  should be the side displayed since it will look awesome with the imperfected look of what remains of the outer skin. 

The bottom will be cut flat so the piece can stand on its side.  The edges will be ground smooth to give it a more finished look.

Item S12 is  16" in length, 10" in height and weighs 14-lbs.  Finished price: $90
