    Pietersite Box
    Stone Source: Nanyang Prefecture, Henan Province, China
    Artist: Konstantin Libman

    This sizeable decorative box has been hewn out of incredible Pieteriste. This unique material showcases "dancing" colors due to its innate composition of Tiger's-Eye, Hawk's Eye and Jasper. This beautiful stone possesses a chatoyant characteristic, which delights the viewer with striking flashes of bright blue. This stately box has been crafted to accentuate the swirling shades of blues, browns, reds, oranges, yellows and blacks, which have been expertly book-matched on all sides. The lid features an impressive design created by four matching pieces. The inside is lined with Spanish Cedar and fitted with Gold-plated brass hinges. This artistic box was handcrafted by master lapidary Konstantin Libman and has artist number "0579" on the bottom. This piece is in pristine condition and comes to life when viewed from different angles. It is presented in a velvet lined wooden outer box.
