DescriptionROSE QUARTZ STARFISH
Artist: Gerd Dreher
Gerd Dreher has deservedly earned his reputation as the all time master carver of gemstones. His ability to take an inanimate object (gemstone crystals) and create highly realistic and detailed renditions of animals in motion is uncanny. This rose Quartz starfish is silently oozing over the water-worn beach cobble in its quest to explore the ocean bottom. Dreher's ability to breathe life into stone has made his works some of the most sought after masterpieces of the lapidary art. This one-of-a-kind creation is a testament to Gerd Dreher's skill, as this life size denizen of the seas is forever captured in flawless rose rock crystal.
Estimate: $30,000 - $35,000.
