    Skull is made from a single piece of amethyst, ranging from a lovely soft mauve color on the face, to deep rich purple at the back of the skull. It is raised on five finely fashioned 18k gold-plated vertebrae, from a cloudy quartz base, banded in rope-pattern gold, with five gold skull and cross-bone feet.
