“The text appears cryptically and in pieces. You need to study the object from different angles in order to decode it. When sunlight hits the stone from the correct angle, it throws a little rainbow onto an adjacent surface.”

Many thanks to Bernard Toyk for cutting and polishing the stone and Lance Hawkins for setting it.
