We just finished putting together the next container which should arrive in late January of 2007.
In Brazil, this one is called Icaro. I'm not too fond of words or thoughts that begins with 'Ick' so I'll be tempted to change the name on this one. It's got the look and colors of the old Taupe. It may be called New Taupe. We'll see. 3cm. 1 bundle.
This one is called IceScream. 3cm. Clever name, but it is a little plain. It may or may not make the cut. 1 bundles.
3cm Deep Purple. It looks like a Quartzite. I've asked for it's properties, but I don't know yet.
Doesn't matter, it was too cool to pass up. 1 bundle.
2 bundles of 3cm Copper Canyon. aka Persian Brown. aka Juperana Picasso. aka Cooper Canyon. aka Juperana Desert. Ok, you get the idea. Lots of names for this stone. This quarry has been having some troubles for a while now. There is some very strange coloration in some of the offerings. These colors are traditional and the movement is just right. I look through a lot of pictures of this stone before I ever find anything I like.
A new one. 2 bundles of 3cm Sunshine. Sometimes you glance at a picture and it grabs you. This one grabbed. Twice.
