DescriptionROSE QUARTZ HUMMINGBIRD COUPLE ON TOURMALINE WITH ALBITE
Artist: Peter Müller
Stone Source: Brazil and Worldwide
Caught in a mating ritual, the male hummingbird, with his wings outspread, is singing a song designed to win over the female that is somewhat oblivious to his signals. Both hummingbirds have been carved out of Rose Quartz. They have Carnelian beaks, Garnet eyes, and gold plated sterling silver feet. They are sitting on a matrix of Tourmaline and Albite that rests on a rock crystal plinth and bears Peter Müller's unique collection #8869. This fanciful sculpture is in fine condition and measures 6½ inches high x 5½ inches wide x 2¾ inches deep. Each of the hummingbirds is 3¼ inches long.
