DescriptionRUTILATED QUARTZ SPHERE
As frequent visitors to Las Vegas know, Siegfried & Roy and their menagerie have
been a fixture of the Vegas entertainment scene forever. The white/blonde color theme of their act is but a recent imitation of what nature has already produced in this Rutilated Quartz sphere. The hair-like inclusions enclosed by this rock crystal sphere look like a lion hair souvenir from an S&R performance: a sheet of pale gold "hairs" of Rutile, trapped for an eternity under a dome of water-clear Rock Crystal measuring 1.75 inches (4.4 cm) in diameter. Rutile inclusions in Quartz have become rather popular in the last few years. It is doubtful that Siegfried & Roy have anything to do with this phenomenon. White Tigers, Lions and Siegfried & Roy - not included.
Offered at no reserve.
Estimate: $500 - $600.
