First, thank you Boon for sharing this! Simply breathtaking and mythical. Second, wish there were rocks like that here in South Carolina. Quartz, quartzite, granite here mostly.

Steven, thank you,
this is bowl rock.  it is volcanic kind of like a lava rock.  weak point is it break easy.  good point is the shape is fun to work with.

Boon, It was a great addition to the show. The litle blue person made it even more special. John

Barabara, He did (plan A), but they were sold out everywhere he went. So Plan B was to find them in Retail, which he eventually did (40% off at that!- Hemped with the gas).
