Félix Alfaro Fournier, grandson of Heraclio Fournier and uncle of my father Ignacio Alfaro Abreu, gave this stone as a gift more than 50 years ago to his godson. I am Jorge Alfaro and Felix Alfaro was my great-uncle. The size of the stone is 27 x 21,5 x 3 cms and the weight is over 6,5 Kg (we are not sure because we don’t have a weighing machine that measures above 6 kg). All images and notes courtesy Jorge Alfaro. This historic stone is for sale and enquiries / offers are welcome.
