Stone Source: Afghanistan
Artist: Konstantin Libman
Top grade Afghani Lapis Lazuli was used to fashion this deep ultramarine blue box. Created from "gem-grade" material by master lapidarist Konstantin Libman, all four sides have been matched to the box top edges, as revealed by the repeated patterning. The blue Lapis is accented by flecks of golden Pyrite crystals and bands of white Calcite. The color is completely natural - intense navy blue with deep violet highlights. The interior and bottom is blackstone with a cedar lining. This piece is completed with hinges of gold-plated brass and includes the artist's unique serial number 0401 on the bottom. This piece is in fine condition.
Overall Measurements: 6.03 x 4.28 x 2.19 inches (15.32 x 10.86 x 5.56 cm)
