I sent a large block of Portuguese Pink Marble to the Sandwich, MA. The sculptor's client then said he wanted a darker color so the block sits there unused.
So rather than ship it back I was wondering if you or your carving mates might want a real nice block for a very, very good price (one third off).
It is a very light pink, almost white with subtle veining, and about 26" X 20" X 20". It weighs 1150 pounds. Portuguese Pink is a very strong stone for detail and considered one of the top carving marbles up there with Carrara.
I usually sell this for $ 1.40/pound (soon to be $ 1.50/#)and the shipping to Massachusetts was $ 310. So here is the super deal if you could use it:
1150 pounds @ $ .95/pound = $ 1092
shipped to MA $ 310/3 = $ 100.
TOTAL = $ 1192.
I think you'd like the stone or might want to cut it up with friends. Here is a picture of it.
