Astral Vessel 0107
Vessel Color: Bright Burnt Orange
Size: Diameter 1-3/8" X 2-1/8"" Tall
This special Vessel features a truly artisinal gemstone created by our longtime partners at the Wackler Gem Company. It is a Doublet consisting of a hemispherical Rutilated Quartz cabochon bonded to a lower flat layer of Condor Agate from the Patagonia region of Argentina.
Encasing this special gem is another truly unique feature of this Vessel: a lathe-turned and Rose Engine engraved setting made of Mokume Gane patterned metal constructed from layers of Sterling Silver, Copper and 5% Shibuichi, a traditional Japanese copper/silver alloy for sword furniture and decorative metalwork. Each metal in the fused laminate reacts differently to the applied patina to reveal the woodgrain patterns that run throughout the thickness of the metal. These patterns are not surface treatments like electroplated colors so they are durable and can be restored to their original colors if ever needed.
Supporting the spectacular gemstone is a Bright Burnt Orange Vessel that we engraved on our 1915 Rose Engine with a pattern complimantary to the gemstone setting, and carved with 24 flutes on our 1875 Goyen Ornamental Lathe.
This special container is one of the most sophisticated Vessels we offer in this size. A true One-of-a-Kind and Heirloom Creation.
