DescriptionPolychrome Jasper Free-Form
This impressive sculpture has been carved out of a single piece of Polychrome Jasper. It has an organic shape where patches of bold earthy tones become the focal point. The contoured tower showcases rich yellows, dark mocha browns, haunting grays and lovely blue-greens, as well as patches of clay-colored reds. This porcelain-like material from Central Madagascar consists predominantly of Quartz, but it features vibrant reds due to iron inclusions. The unique patterns were created during the consolidation process which formed the dynamic flowing depositional design. This amazing piece of lapidary has been expertly cut and polished, and the geologic "lava lamp" is definitely a statement piece for any eccentric setting. In excellent condition, this unusual and towering creation simply speaks for itself and can be displayed from any angle.
