Roadside Find -- A Marble Disc

My wife today found this exquisite marble disc by the side of the road.

It's 15" in diameter and 5/8" thick. It weighs almost 11 lbs.

The only bad news is that the underside features a disgusting puddle of hardened adhesive of some sort, like so.

Hmmm. I'll have to see what, if anything, will remove that mess.

Paring with a sharp utility knife blade got most of it. Lacquer thinner seems to dissolve what's left, albeit slowly. Here's my progress so far.

At least it's fit to be the disc's underside now.

I have no idea what I'm going to do with this item, but it begs me to find something very good to do with it.

To be continued, God only knows when.
