#594 is a handheld gray suita with faint blotches of karasu along with a few inclusions filled with white namazu. The back shows iron volcanic crustal waste minerals. It will come with a tested tomonagura slurry stone. I have honed several razors on this stone and the resulting shaves were professionally close and comfortable.

All of my stones are sold with a money-back guarantee minus the return shipping if within 30 days of the sale and returned in their original state. Please do not lacquer the stone if you have any intention of returning it.
I encourage sealing the sides of all sedimentary stones, especially if there a inclusions, cracks, or fissures and or if the stone is used in an active workshop where the stone is constantly wet. For casual use, sealing, especially all four sides, and preferably the back with one of either a marine type of spar varnish, a synthetic lacquer, urushi, or a cashew-derived lacquer is prudent.
