    I do not believe these are the Mueller stones that you see advertised from time to time. Those I have seen reviews on as being gritty and not as fine as a Thuri should be. These are Hebertz, maybe the quality is a little better from them than the competition?

    I would probably buy from the seller in my first link though, given the exceptionally low price in the second I suspect a knife quality stone that may not be suitable for razors. But I have yet to buy one of either so again can not speak to quality of either. I'm fairly certain some users here have a stone from the first site though, as this is where I originally found the link to the seller's page. Maybe somebody who has one of his stones can vouch for him, but I suspect they are as advertised - good quality reclaimed material.
    What color and I looking for?

    I can personally vouch for the seller in the first link. I have bought stones from him and he is a well-respected member here.

    Edit to add: Thanks Kelbro. I was pretty sure they were a member here but couldn't remember for certain. I'm just waiting patiently to come across the right stone on their site. I think I'll know it when I see it!

    I'll answer with a link to an old thread here I found:

    Escher Colors

    My personal want is yellow/green. But best I can reconnoiter at the end of the day the shave is going to be smooth enough and the difference so subtle from one color to the next that you basically can't go wrong with a good Thuri regardless of it's coloring. Besides, they're natural stones. I'm sure there is some overlap where the best performing Blue/Green are indistinguishable from most Yellow/Greens (or vice versa).
