An unusual viewing stone for the scholars desk made of a light tan stone with pink blotches on all sides. There are obvious took marks that make it clear that the stone was enhanced to bring out the contrasting colors. It comes in a small wooden stand – not very well made but it does give the stone solid stability. The stone measures 5” high by 4” wide by 1 ¼” thick and is in excellent condition. We believe it dates from the early 20th century.
