The Hard Translucent Arkansas Stone is actually translucent. We've put it to the test to remove any doubts.

To demonstrate the translucent properties of this stone we simply turned off the lights and turned on a flashlight. Even though this simple handheld flashlight is aimed at a 1/2" thick stone, the light clearly passed through.

To demonstrate that all stones are not translucent, we picked a 1/2" thick Hard Arkansas Stone from our inventory. While still a fine stone, the light does not pass through the stone at all.
