    Chrysocolla Box
    Handcrafted in Wyoming
    Stone Source: Arizona

    This medium sized one-of-a-kind treasure box was handcrafted from Black Walnut and Redwood Burl. The hinged lid contains one striking piece of prized Chrysocolla and one piece of Chrysocolla with Malachite. The Chrysocolla measures 2.75 x 1.37 inches (6.98 x 3.5 cm) and exhibits the quintessential bluish-green hue. The Chrysocolla with Malachite measures 2.74 x 1.57 inches (8.3 x 4 cm) and has the same blue-green hue with stunning swirls of Malachite running within. They are both floating in a protective resin positioned to allow light to spotlight these minerals. Framing the minerals are three slices of naturally stunning Redwood Burl. Inside the box is one more extra "gem," in the shape of a little Turquoise button floating in the bottom of the box. This perfect sized utilitarian box is in excellent condition with serial number 201527. Perfect for any collector of discerning taste.
    Overall Measurements: 10.1 x 5.9 x 4.3 inches (25.7 x 15.1 x 10.8 cm)
