    Might be but in this term these type of stones are meant, plus the one shown from the Old Theo A Kochs Catalogue

    Hi, FAL. Still in search, but nothing interesting until this moment. Brazil is passing through hard times (economically and politically speaking) since november, and it reflected on how much alumni were admitted at the University. Since then, I had a severe drawback on how much classes I teach on Biology department and had to assume a lot more master degree students to advise and classes on other campi and departments to keep the cash flowing in. No time to lurk quarries by now.
    Brazilian people was once heavily opressed and terrorized by nasty cruel dictators, and this fact still contaminates the mind of the people with fear of politicians. If we once had developed the habit to shot some of these damned parasites the crisis would be handled faster.
    We are (as the Russians) still learning how to manage democracy. Lots of mobsters to hang, but lots of corrupt institutions and few constitutional means to do this. Sometimes a little civil war on the history of a people is a good thing.

    Matheus, I believe you could chronicle your search for a hone treasure in novel form. I suggest the first line be taken from one of your posts: " Some time ago, I drunk a beer on a small village bar, west of Goias, and its balcony was made of a nice polished greenish and hard slate."

    Brasil, tenho muito saudades. Maybe I have another reason to go back, look for rocks.
    From their stillness came their non-action...Doing-nothing was accompanied by the feeling of satisfaction, anxieties and troubles find no place

    I have been watching the Brazil situation, and hope you have Your FAL at the ready Mateus.

    Looks like world wide civil wars are going to erupt in the near future, so we ALL will get at least a taste of the unpleasantness, sadly.
