DescriptionPENGUIN COUPLE ON ALBITE
Artist: Peter Muller
Stone source: Brazil
A Quartz and Albite 'ice floe' is the frigid playground for this penguin couple. Fashioned from deep black Obsidian and pure white Quartz, this cool duo is comprised of one penguin getting ready to belly-slide and the other watching the whole affair with a skeptical eye. The Quartz/Albite that their little vermeil feet are attached to, is shot through with purple mica and bi-color Tourmaline prisms giving the 'ice floe' a slightly outre look. Both birds are 5 inches in length and the complete sculpture is 7 inches high by 10 ½ inches wide by 9 inches deep. Excellent condition.
