Carving of Abraham Lincoln

    Carving of Abraham Lincoln


    Blue topaz; carving, polishing

    13.9 х 10 х 8.8 cm


    Carved from a single specimen of prodigious size, this unique lapidary work of art was created by an anonymous American artist using natural, unenhanced blue topaz from Brazil. The natural boulder surface of the alluvial tumbled crystal is visible to the reverse side. A fine portrait of Abraham Lincoln and excellent recognizable likeness.
