DescriptionROSE QUARTZ MACAW COUPLE on AQUAMARINE CRYSTAL BASE
Artist: Peter Müller
Stone Source: Brazil
A Rose Quartz Macaw couple have decided to make an Aquamarine crystyal their perch. Master carver Peter Müller only utilizes natural stones to create his sculptures - there is no enhancement to the colors. In this case the Macaws are of carved of deep pastel pink Rose Quartz, with beaks and eyes of Garnet, and feet of gold-plated Sterling Silver feet. These birds contrast strongly with the Aquamarine crystal that they are standing on. The Aquamarine base has deep blue green coloration, is translucent, and stands 6.5 inches (16.5 cm) tall. The birds themselves are 10 inches (25.4 cm) long, and one has an outspread wingspan of 8.5 inches (21.6 cm). The birds are extremely detailed down to their pin feathers.
Estimate: $5,500 - $6,500.
