Re: [BKARTS] printing for eternity



Hi  Coming late to the party but I saw a piece of carved jade at the
Guggenheim that had been dug up in China that was over 2000 years
old.  Apparently jade is as durable as diamonds and comes in bigger
pieces.  It can also be sliced very thin.  A book with pages of leaf
thin jade - now you're talking.

forever, then a >>diamond with laser etched writing on it would
truely be printing for eternity.
