DescriptionTRANSLUCENT BLUE LACE AGATE BOX
Handcrafted in Italy
Stone source: Namibia
Blue Lace Agate only comes from the Ysterputs Farm in Namibia. This unusual box has been carved from a single solid block of the finest Blue Lace Agate. This prize material had long been in the inventory of an Idar Oberstein lapidary master carver. The Italian artisan took that block of raw material and created a magnificent study in lavender-blues, pastel blues and soft creams. This fine pastel box is very translucent with strong "clouds". It measures 5 11/16 x 4 x 2 inches (15 x 10 cm) and is in very fine condition.
