Sapphire Carving of a Monkey
By Ronald Stevens
A popular subject with carvers is the gorilla or monkey, which in this case is rendered using a single large sapphire crystal from Burma, weighing 44.5 grams (222.5 carats). The natural sheen of the mineral suggests the glossy sheen of his fur. Height 1 1/2 in
