The 'problem' with changing patterns or pattern modifiers, is that 
scales get changed too. In a sense, you are right: it is not the same 
rock indeed and you need to readjust your frame of reference. Don't let 
it fool you: that 10cm grid does not represent anything real; I have 
always bee troubled by those quasi-real measurements (I am going to take 
out those cm-values and replace them by Martian Claw Units). My believe 
is that size/dimensions in POV-Ray are dimensionless as it were and only 
meaningful in relation to recognisable objects.

I attach a version with the material scaled by two. Still looking good, 
imo, and much better than the cells pattern.
