yán - research; grind

Had my lab's Away Day today and had to present my research, which went quite well. So today's 汉字 is research themed. I like how this word means both 'research' and 'grind', which often seem similar. It is also interesting that the radical is 石. I think it has something to do with an alchemical past, but that's just a guess.
