    Default what it is?

    "This is very interesting stone. i have took as close as i can pictures.
    i have never had time to test this but will do so soon.
    it comes from England. i had more then year ago .
    very heavy may be 5-7 pound range .
    very old because it has been cut not with saw there is no saw marks.
    Stone is a lot softer any arkansas ,turkey oil stone or charnley .f..
    it is harder then eschers.
    this is all i can say.

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.
