Description'CANDLE FLAME' TIGER'S-EYE BOX
Handcrafted in Italy
Stone source: South Africa
Because of asymmetries in the raw material used to make up the top of this golden treasure box, there is a 'candle flame' of gold Tiger's-Eye outlined in shining metallic black hematite, centered in the middle of the box lid. This patterning attests to the skill and perception of the master lapidary who created this box. The Tiger's-Eye grades in color from mainly yellow/gold to a few select areas with a subtle green/blue tint to them. Gold plated furniture and a black onyx interior. In excellent condition, this unique 'candle flame' box measures 5 7/8 x 3 7/8 x 1 5/8 inches (10 x 15 cm).
