Rich in minerals, Madagascar is a special destination for artist Naomi Sarna. She traveled to the island nation in search of minerals for her carvings. While there she found this splendid specimen of rutilated Quartz. The delicate rutile threads sparkling throughout the carving are created by titanium dioxide. Sarna hand-carved the gem to bring out the hematite flecks and rutile threads, making it a one-of-a-kind piece of art. Golden Oriole nests on an acrylic base. This one-of-a-kind Golden Oriole art carving comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Naomi Sarna.
