I found a local person who can cut rock here, where I live. I have access to tons of translucent, and banded, stone. Here are some examples that were cut by two different rock cutters. The banded piece was cut with a water-fed, Dewalt saw. Also, if the rock is cut into slabs, I can get it shipped through the postal system, to the U.S. The other day, when I checked, I was quoted a price of under $3 dollars, for shipping a slab. If anyone is interested in slabs of translucent, or other exotic stone, let me know.
