    TIGER-EYE BALD EAGLES ON SMOKY QUARTZ
    Artist: Peter Müller
    Stone Source: South Africa, Brazil & Worldwide
    A mated pair of Bald Eagles are perched on a large Smoky Quartz crystal that is erupting from a white and silvery Albite & Mica base. They have been carved from chatoyant, golden Tiger-Eye and have Agate beaks, red Coral tongues, Amber eyes and snow-white Quartz heads and tails. They are gripping the smoky Quartz crystal with gold-plated sterling silver talons. One eagle has his wings outspread as if he is just landing - he is 8 inches tall, has a wingspread of 7 ½ inches and measures 6 ½ inches from beak to tail. He is being greeted by his mate, who is 6 ¾ inches long and 2 ½ inches wide. She has her beak open as if making a comment to her arriving partner. Extremely well carved, with details down to the pinfeathers, this impressive carving stands 17 ½ inches high, is 12 ¾ inches wide and over 10 inches deep, on an acrylic base. It is in fine condition and bears the artist Peter Müller's unique collection number "8975".
