DescriptionUNUSUAL ORBICULAR GRANITE BOX
Handcrafted in Italy
Stone source: Australia
Orbicular granite is found in only a few places in the world: Finland, Chile, Mexico and Western Australia - as seen in this unusual box. A very rare igneous rock type, it has strong concentric patterns in black, white and grey that contrast strongly with the light grey granite ground mass. A large, strongly defined orb has been centered in the box lid, surrounded by smaller orbs, making a dynamic statement. Created by a master Italian lapidary artist, it is flawlessly matched on all sides. Complemented by a black onyx interior and gold plated brass hinge, this box is in excellent condition and measures 8 5/8 x 5 5/8 x 2 5/8 inches.
