    Exquisite lapidary work equal to Fabergé himself. Virtuoso rock crystal egg, which is carved and set with 58 emerald cabochons. With the aid of the push button top, the egg opens into two halves to reveal two pigs seated on a cushion carved from a high quality single crystal of bi-colour beryl (morganite and green beryl), with diamond-set eyes, and accents of red enamel on 18K gold. Raised on a removable black obsidian pedestal.
