Why is this so rare? Well here is the history/story of this particular stone. This stone was found in South Africa in the 1930's. The guy that found it buried it to hid if from the Nazi Germans. His family dug it back up after the the Nazi danger disappeared. Years later the family sold it to a guy in Germany (funny way things work sometimes) who sold it to us. We have been sitting on this material for years. I can not seem to find much if it on the market so I though I could put some up here on the auction site for you all to enjoy and hopefully own!
