Artist: Peter Müller
    Stone Source: Ametrine is from the Anahi Mine of Bolivia, and the Rose Quartz is from Brazil

    This carving is truly in motion as this exquisite pair of geese are literally frozen in midair flight as captured through this unique carving. The wings of these two waterfowl are inverted in perfect counterpoint to one another during their orchestrated flight. The birds are carved from Ametrine: a unique form of Quartz that comes from only one place on Earth. It combines both Amethyst and Citrine in the same material. Fine details are as carefully chosen as well: agate beaks ad garnet eyes. The detailed webbed feet are gold plated sterling silver and fit securely onto the translucent Rose Quartz base. The rich pink bowl blends fluidly with the purple carvings. This unique carving has the duality of being a colorful work of art but could also be a display dish for special treasures as the deep and contoured bowl can hold other items. The piece bears renowned master artist Peter Müller's own collection number of 9219. The top bird has a 6 inch (15 cm) wingspan, a 4 inch (10 cm) body length and a 2 ½ inch (6 cm) height, while its companion has a 5 inch (13 cm) wingspan, a 4 inch (10 cm) body length and a 1 ½ inch (4 cm) height. The Rose Quartz bowl is a full 8 inches (20 cm) wide, 5 inches (13 cm) deep and 2 ½ inches (6 cm) high. The overall piece extends 5 inches (13 cm) from bottom to top.

    Estimate: $4,000 - $5,000.
