As Lawrence writes:
Many of the crystals lying on my desk, a table, or shelves are greatly enhanced when mounted on a complementary base. In my early days as a crystal cutter, I had no interest in doing bases, though whenever I put a crystal to light, the full majesty of its interior ignited. It may have something to do with the polarity of the two media: minerals are among the densest matter on earth, and visible light among the “lightest” waveforms in the universe.
When light enters the dense but transparent gemstone, substance and illumination collide, oscillate, and integrate all at once. By beaming a halogen light into the crystal, it appears bigger, more articulated, more alive. Directing light into a crystal or gem is comparable to when we humans feel joy. Looking into the illuminated crystal is like getting to know who someone really is, as opposed to having only a first impression. The light reveals who lives inside.
This is a substantial, museum quality sculpture. Masterfully hand sculpted in the U.S.A.
Artist authentication included.
Sizing is approximate. As with all hand-made items, the final size may be a touch larger or smaller than described. True lapidary artists will follow the natural structure of the crystal which may result in slightly different final sizes.
While we take great care in photographing our crystal items, photographs don’t always accurately show the true color of a particular stone. The colors shown may be slightly deeper or lighter than presented. In most case, the colors and saturation are accurate.
