    Micromorphologic examination of the "Gabriel Revelation" Stone

    On the Israel Exploration Journal 58/2 (2008) Yuval Goren from Tel Aviv University published a paper containing the results of the micromorphologic examination of the "Gabriel Revelation" Stone (pp. 220-229) which exclude a modern treatment of the surface of the stone. However, he also makes it clear that this does not guarantee beyond doubt that the entire inscription or parts of it were created in antiquity or forged in modernity; further analyses will be necessary, in particular an examination of the pigment, in order to date it so as to have certain results about the authenticity of the finding.
