some pretty building stone in an unexpected location

I have just returned from a four day visit to see friends who live in Ireland. I didn’t bring my computer along this trip, so I’ve returned to a fair bit of reading of e-mail/livejournal/blogs/facebook to catch up on. So I’ll just share this pretty building stone from a counter top in the Dublin airport. Lovely stuff, with plenty of garnet, definite foliation, some huge feldspar phenocrysts. No idea from whence it came, but it sure did brighten up the airport part of my adventure to see it.

That is a beautiful building stone. Always nice to see someone else pointing out the beauty of the stone we pass every day.
Cheers,
