Default Laser Engraved True Stone

I made this for a University of North Carolina at Chapel Hills Alumni. I have done true stone before with great results, but never used the laser engraver on the finished product. I was amazed at how this turned out, of course that comes from humbly perusing the many incredible pen pictures my fellow turners post on this site!

As a UNC alum myself, I absolutely love it. What is the color of truestone you used. I have looked around a fair bit for a good "Carolina Blue" colored blank without much luck. That one is NICE ! GO HEELS.

The blank is from PSI, it is called Tru-Stone Light Denim Lapis.
