Bone Figure of Chitipati
Chinese Carved Bone Mountain Sculpture
The story of the Chinese goddess Guanyin is beautifully depicted in this magnificent Chinese bone sculpture. Exhibiting the highest level of detail, this monumental sculpture is masterfully crafted entirely from the highest quality bone in the ancient Chinese tradition. Intricately hand-carved, the mountain scene is covered with the finest details, such as winding walkways, blossoming trees, billowing clouds and over forty human figures. The central figure, Guanyin, known as the Maternal Goddess, the Protectress of Children, and the Observer of All Sounds, is one of the most revered figures in Chinese mythology, frequently gracing both temples and domestic shrines.

Hubnerite with Quartz, Mundo Nuevo Mine, Peru
This Hubnerite on Quartz is among the most spectacular we have ever seen in our 30+ years. The Quartz crystals are elongated and tapered, bright, clear and flawless. The blackish block tabular crystals of Hubnerite explode from the center creating a dynamic sculptural quality. The entire piece looks like a geometric representation of an frozen explosion.
