Heart of Stone

During my years at Susquehanna University studying geology, I spent a lot of time in the rock preparation room with rock-cutting saws, polishing tools, and thin-section slide-making tools.  It was a lot of fun taking a cool rock and cutting it up like slices of bread…really hard bread that required some diamond-edged sawblades.  One particular large rock had some pretty cool patterns inside (I think it was mostly some type of feldspar), and I decided to take a slice and try out some carving skills.  In the end, I was pretty pleased with how it came out (even if it is a little uneven…hearts are difficult!).
