These two vintage belgians are very similar in size (a bit over 1.5"x7"my favorite size nontheless), so I could keep only one of them. I'd be happy with either one, and you get to pick the one that you like better.

One is a natural combo i.e. from the border where the two veins meet. The size is (1 11/16)"x (7 9/16)".
The yellow side is the typical uniform cream color of the good natural combos. Since there is not enough details for contrast I had to throw a washer on the surface in order to make my camera to focus. And you can even see some leftover swarf, so you don't have to take my word on it being able to cut metal ;)

The sides are tapered strangely so the blue side is slightly smaller. The color is on the gray side of purple, and as you can see on the photos it still has the typical figuring of the blue in a tighter grain.
