18th century Italian candlestick fragment decorated with pyrite in matrix on a polished agate base. The fragment was originally part of a candlestick in a historical Italian church in Italy. It is gilded and mounted with coordinating pyrite in matrix and placed on a polished agate base.

The Italian church artifact, pyrite in matrix, and agate are put together in a sculptural form - creating an organic and historically significant work of art.
