Artist: Peter Muller
    Stone source: Tanzania and Brazil

    This dramatic Macaw couple has been carved predominantly out of Ruby with accents of brilliant green Zoisite. This combination of stone is particularly difficult to carve because the extreme hardness of the Ruby contrasts sharply with the softer Zoisite. One Macaw sits on top of a large transparent Quartz crystal. He has a wingspread of 7 inches and an overall body length of 10 ¼ inches. His mate is sitting to the side of the crystal and is 11 inches long and 2 ¼ inches wide. They both have gold plated sterling silver feet, Garnet eyes, orange Carnelian beaks and red Coral tongues. They have been carved in great detail down to the pinfeathers. This loving couple sits on a clear Quartz crystal that is mounted on a black granite base and is lit with a quartz halogen bulb. Created by master carver Peter Muller, it bears his unique collection number 8400. The overall dimensions are 22 inches high x 7 inches wide and 9 inches deep. In excellent condition

    Estimate: $9,000 - $12,000.
