    Default HAD candy

    Charnley Forest/Dragons tongue combination...

    Disclaimer: No healthy Charnley was harmed in any way...this combo was made/recovered, from a badly damaged stone. Now it has new life.

    Approx. 7x2x1

    Thanks,

    Mac

    I hear that 6x2x1 is even a better size .... hint -hint ....
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Thanks guys!
    It was brutal to cut and shape...since most had to be done by hand, but it was a labor of love, for sure. Two diagnal corners are curved, due to some damage that had to be lapped off. However, the curves seem to work pretty good, if your a hand honer...sits better, for some reason.

    Jimmy, there is a second half to that stone ya know. "Wink, wink back" lol

    Thanks again,

    Mac

    Mac that is one very nicely done job! I sure wish I could find an oversized Escher someplace to salvage like that! :-) Nice brush and bowl as well!

    Very Pretty combination! I really like the color combo on that one.....how does it look wet?

    It looks even better wet...the red inclusions look bolder. I'd post some pics, but i loaned it out already.
    Ive decided to make the same combo with the other charnley half...the dragons tongue stone has already been ordered.
    Probably what impressed me the most, is the feel of the stone. I'm doing/experimenting with some interesting lapping methods, these days and the stones feel like skin/silk...quite nice, imo.

    Thanks,

    Mac
