ink stone (砚yan).

Material

metamorphosed Pre-cambrian Dalriadan sedimentary rock from the Moray firth

Description.

It is about the size and shape of a paperback book. The iron products that give it its colour and pattern also made for difficulties in cutting. Having chosen a slab whose even thickness I thought would save time, I found I needed to go a good way down to find stable stone.
