    Story Behind the Art:
    Peruvian artisan Cesar Gonzales has worked as a stone carver since 1988. Of his four children, the oldest girl shows the most interest in her father's art and even assists him. Gonzales works with serpentine, rose manganese, calcite, celestite, red jasper, mottramite, chrysocolla, rhodochrosite and quartz. 'I work in stone because of the beautiful things that can be made with each kind,' he says. 'I like stone's naturalness and purity of color.'

    • Garnet Obelisk Sculpture, real stone

      Garnet Obelisk is a real stone and good color of burgundy. A little marbled look and lots of burgundy color.

    • Nice color, high gloss a bit off-putting

      I'd prefer a less glossy finish for a more natural look, but now that I reexamine the photo, I see that it is as indicated.

    • Very well packaged item.

      This was a gift to my daughter in law. Her birthday is in January and she isn't able to wear silver so getting her jewelry in her birthstone is almost impossible. I was very pleased to find this item in Garnet. It took a while to arrive but was very very well packaged; Only thing I would have liked to have would have been a description enclosed with it.
