    Centered about a gorgeous tower of dark pink and deep green Tourmaline, this fine carving features a pair of elegant hummingbirds with wings hewn out of beautiful light pink Morganite and bodies of soft blue Aquamarine with Carnelian Agate beaks and Rhodolite Garnet eyes. The entire piece rises from a layered base of beveled Quartz crystal.. The feet which attach to the tower are gold plated sterling silver. These lifelike hummingbirds make a colorful pair in stark contrast to the striking Tourmaline tower with its unique mineralogy. This carving features master artist Peter Müller's own collection number of 9431 with it. The hummingbirds each have wingspans of 4½ inches (11 cm). The vertically positioned hummingbird has a body length of 4¾ inches (12 cm), while its horizontally positioned partner on top has a body length of 4 inches (10 cm). This piece measures 8 inches (20 cm) high, 6 ¼ inches (16 cm) wide and 6 ½ inches (16.5 cm) deep overall.

    Estimate: $2,500 - $3,000.
