Backed Rough

IMG_4625Stones are shaped by abrasive wheels ranging from rough grit to fine grit.  There is some material lost when the top of the stones are flattened out. The shine is not wax or polish, but is the result of fine grit diamond coated wheel sanding.  These are 100% natural (unstabilized or enhanced) stones showing their true natural color.  There is a bronze color “Devcon” which backs the stones for strength and mounting purposes.
