DescriptionBLUE TIGER-EYE "ARROWHEAD" BOX
Handcrafted in Italy
Stone source: South Africa
This is only the second box ever created with this unusual "arrowhead" pattern. The master lapidary artist had to locate a piece of rough where the dark blue Tiger-Eye was interspersed with the golden ochre matrix rock in the correct proportions. "Arrowheads" were created utilizing 'butterflied' stone to create mirror images of the patterning. The tessellation is so precise that it fools the eye into believing that this box consists of completely natural slabs. Featuring a black onyx interior with gold-plated locking brass furniture, this extraordinary box measures 9 x 6 x 3 1/8 inches (22 x 15 cm) and is in fine condition.
