Agate and 18K Gold Box
By Manfred Wild
Idar-Oberstein, Germany

Of oval outline, carved of a single boulder of fine quality brown-black banded agate from Minas Gerais, Brazil. The body of the box has been hollowed out to permit the transmission of light through the translucent stone to better allow the viewing of the fascinating concentric patterns of the exceptional material. The substantial border of 18K yellow gold, and the hinge as well as the lid have a probable weight of over 2 troy ounces. Stamped 750, EB for Emil Becker, Manfred Wild's firm and monogram OHG. Measures 4 1/2 x 3 1/2 x 1 1/2 in
