DescriptionTESSELLATED "DIAMOND" BOX - A RAINBOW OF NATURAL COLORS
Handcrafted in Italy
Stone source: Worldwide
This striking tessellated box has been crafted by a master Italian lapidary whose skill is such that there are virtually no gaps in the inlay work. A riot of color created by a vast array of colors from around the world: Amazonite from Russia, Rhodochrosite from Argentina, Malachite from Congo, Lapis from Afghanistan, Amethyst from Brazil, Tiger-Eye from South Africa, Sodalite from Namibia, Aventurine from India, Labradorite from Madagascar, and Tiger-Iron from Australia, as well numerous world-wide Jaspers, Onyx and Rhyolites. Squares of color have been framed in Black Onyx and set at a 45-degree angle to create a "diamond" pattern. The strong pattern continues on all sides. In fine condition, this unusual box measures 6 7/8 x 5 ½ x 2 1/8 inches.
