Forget that, I have a geology question for you Jim. What hardness
on the mohr scale does it take to cut Diorite?

( The Egyptians were supposedly using copper chisels)

Could they have used something like a powder or paste of some
semi precious gem as an abrassive with which to cut? What would
it have taken? A corrundum or would they have had to use diamonds?
