Rhodochrosite Carving of a Cockatoo
By Peter Mueller
Brazil

Perfectly capturing the exotic colors of a cockatoo is this carving of brilliant red Argentinian rhodochrosite. The beak and eyes are formed of garnets, while the gold vermeil feet rest upon a matrix having a lustrous green tourmaline crystal within. The specimen is embedded into a custom fitted base carved from a block of rock crystal quartz, height 7in.
