Amethyst slice adorned with an 18th century Italian hand-carved fragment and natural-forming baroque pearls on a lucite base.
The amethyst slice displays a gradient of purple to clear tones. It originally comes from Brazil. The Italian fragment is originally from Florence. It is joined to the piece with baroque pearls that compliment the purple and lilac tones of the amethyst.
The amethyst slice, 18th century fragment, and baroque pearls create a sculptural work of old and new - establishing piece that appears to have evolved together over time. The precious mineral specimen combined with the Italian fragment pieces create a historic yet contemporary work of art. Rococo meets organic modern.
