Sexy Stone Carvings Semi precious stone hearts that I gave my mother over the years. She died at the ripe old age of 100. The bottom two with the loops, she wore around her neck for 30 years and was never without them. Except of course when she went to bed. She cracked the green Malachite piece, so I glued the broken tip back on with yellow pigmented epoxy to accent that all is not perfect in this very disturbed world. ‘Tiger’s Eye Lady’—about 3 inches long. Top view of ‘Opal Flower’. This is closer to the real color than the photo below. From 11 o’clock, ‘Tiger’s Eye Lady’, ‘Pale Amethyst Crystal Lady’, ‘Dark Amethyst Tonguie’, ‘Black Coral Lady’, ‘Amethyst Lady with Breasts’, Rhodochrosite Lady’, the two center pieces, ‘Synthetic Quartz Ladies with Breasts’. ‘Opal Flower’— made from a choice piece of Australian Coober Pedy Precious Opal. The sparkles show every color of the rainbow, and are seen from every viewpoint. About 3.5 inches long. The ‘Flower’ has very thin ruffles. The Amethyst is a very deep color. Held up to the light it comes to life. This ‘Quartz Sandstone Flower’ polished up beautifully! The light fleshy stripe is a great contrast with the really warm darker tones. This is carved in synthetic quartz. This bottle stopper is carved in smokey Quartz. Top two are out of Howelite, the bottom three are carved in Travertine marble. Amethyst Carved in Ethiopian opal. It is very hard to get a photo to display the iridescence in the stone, but the areas of iridescence are spectacular. ‘Fossilized Coral Fire Hydrant’—about 2″ high. ‘Stubby the Clown’—my favorite little guy. Carved in robin’s egg blue turquoise, with epoxy yellow inlay. Rear view of ‘Stubby’. Carved in travertine marble. The translucency of the head , juxtaposed with the opaque rear make an interesting piece.
