DescriptionAFRICAN GREY PARROTS ON RUBELLITE TOURMALINE
Artist: Peter Müller
Stone Source: Brazil & Worldwide
This extremely life-like pair of African Grey Parrots have been carved out of phantom-included Quartz, which gives their bodies a shimmering grey coloration. They both have vivid pink Rhodonite tails, black Onyx beaks, yellow Citrine eyes, white Quartz feather accent areas and gold-plated sterling silver feet. One is 4 ¼ inches long, and the other is 4 ½ inches long; both are 1 5/8 inches wide. These life-partners have been caught in animated conversation and are standing on a deep-pink Tourmaline that has been secured to a stacked plinth of colorless Quartz that measures 3 ½ inches on a side. The overall sculpture stands 7 7/8 inches high and is 4 inches wide. It bears Peter Müller's unique collection number "8978" and is in very fine condition.
