The Arkenstone of Thrain: Half-Finished


"It shone like silver in the firelight, like water in the sun, 
like snow under the stars, like rain upon the moon...."
                                                            ----from The Hobbit

  3. My poor husband! He had to start over three times. He began cutting the stone and found the stone was deeply flawed. So far, this third attempt has been good.
