    Description

    Magnesite Bowl
    Goongarrie north of Kalgoorlie
    Western Australia


    This unique material was mined in remote Western Australia and has been fashioned into a distinctly attractive, decorative and utilitarian bowl. This natural bowl features a deep basin, and the lip has been left rough to show the natural appeal of this piece. This interesting material forms in a metamorphic environment, and the end result showcases "popcorn" shaped spots of vibrant lime-yellow against deep red to create an intriguing end product. The overall appearance of this organic shaped bowl exhibits a lovely polish and appealing shape. This dense material is in excellent condition and will make one great accent piece.
    Overall Measurements: 11.25 x 10.75 x 4.50 inches (28.57 x 27.30 x 11.43 cm)

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]


    Estimate: $2,500 - $3,500.
