Certainly a piece to be admired and a large piece at just over half an ounce (16.60 grams). An intricate structure of layered gold with some areas being crusty and dense crystalized gold and extensions of leaf gold that are covered in hoppered and slightly protruding trigon crystals, like a textured wall paper of triangles - brilliant and extremely rare. The piece has a pure gold color and is museum quality when you account for the larger size and dynamic structure. Scroll down through all of the photos and take a look at these amazing hoppered trigon crystals. Perfect lines and I count five to six layers or hoppering on some of these trigons - amazing!
