    FUCHSITE PARROTS ON QUARTZ CRYSTALS
    Artist: Peter Müller
    Stone Source: Sweden, Brazil & Worldwide

    As if engaged in a mating ritual, these two deep green and white parrots have been carved by master lapidary artist Peter Müller from Fuchsite: a rare Chromium bearing Mica. Both are accented with Garnet eyes, Agate beaks and gold-plated sterling silver feet. They are standing on a cluster of clear Quartz crystals, and overall this fine sculpture measures 12 inches high, 9 ½ inches wide and 5 ½ inches deep. The first parrot measures 7 inches long and is 3 inches wide, while the other parrot is 6 5/8 inches long and 2 ½ inches wide. The carving is extremely detailed, down to the pinfeathers, and bears the artist's unique collection number "8891".


    Estimate: $3,500 - $4,500.
