Nature's Stained-Glass Window

As preparation continues to begin the cob walls, I needed to prepared a large Honeycomb Calcite stone slab for placement placement in the east wall.

The stone needed polishing on the flat surface side (shown in photo), that will be facing toward the interior of the room.

The opposite side of this stone is the original outer surface, which is right now a frosty-white. Later I will sand-blast the outer surface of the stone to remove some of the stone's 'skin'. That will allow more light through, enhance its translucency and thus create the stained-glass window effect.
