First Binary Recording Found


Recommended Posts

There is a lapidary stone that goes by the trade name Chinese Writing Stone that is also diorite porphyry. I found 3 boulders in the canyon of the upper Hassayampa River a couple years ago and my back still hurts from packing them out.

I gave a bunch of slabs away and it makes beautiful cabs. Mine has a little finer pattern but essential is the same rock. This is a poor picture of a cab I cut from one of the rocks.

diorite porphyry

Have one of those sitting on my desk as a paper weight... Dug it up somewhere around here 4 or 5 years ago... Thought it looked cool. Now I know what it is.

That's a really neat looking cab. Thanks for posting.
