    BLUE CHALCEDONY MACAW COUPLE on QUARTZ CRYSTAL BASE
    Artist: Peter Müller
    Stone Source: Brazil & Worldwide

    These long tailed blue-violet Macaws are playfully resting on a Quartz Crystal wedge placed on a blackstone base. Each Macaw is painstakingly carved out of blue Chalcedony with rich purple-red Garnet bills and piercing Garnet eyes. This lively scene features one Macaw with wings spread and turning away from his inquisitive partner, while the other bird is looking up to make its point with wings folded simply trying to avoid confrontation. The dominant Macaw measures 6.5 inches (16.51 cm) tall with a 4.63 inch (11.76 cm) wingspan; his playmate measures 6.5 inches (16.51 cm) in height and is 1.5 inches (3.81 cm) wide. They both have gold plated sterling silver feet. Artist Peter Müller has been able to stop time and portray these endangered creatures in this simple vignette before they are gone forever.
    Overall Measurements: 5.5 x 6.0 x 13.5 inches (13.97 x 15.24 x 34.29 cm)
