Title
Cuba - Province of Matanzas - Cardenas: Stone cutters at work on a slab of recently quarried coral rock. They are cutting it into the proper size for some repair or construction work in a nearby building. While fresh from the quarry this coal rock cuts easily and as time goes on it becomes very hard as it is exposed to the elements. The longer it stands the harder it gets and it becomes almost indestructible
