Natural Citrine Carving of a Lion
by Gerhard Becker
Idar-Oberstein, Germany

Carved from a single large crystal of citrine, entirely unenhanced and natural in color, this is an exceptional lapidary work of art. Realistically carved, the face, mane and shoulders are particularly gemmy and transparent, showing a strong saturation of color graduating to a lighter citrine at the base. The figure rests upon a circular, polished black onxy base. Height 7in
