Laser technology right there. Diorite is such a strong igneous rock. Carving it with bronze would leave it with not even a scratch.

Just check Mohs scale of hardness.

It cant be a mould. Diorite is similar to Granite. It is formed when magma within a batholith cools over a long, long period. Millions of years for example.

Even if it was possible to create a fire hot enough to melt the material, if it was a mold when melted the minerals would not reform into diorite, but most probably andesite. The two cannot be confused with each other, they are very different rocks.
