Story Behind the Art: Brazilian artisan Guena says, 'In 1980, I left a career as an accountant. I began as an artisan's assistant and a sculptor, and became fascinated with gems and crystals. Today I travel throughout Brazil in search of crystals from Bahia, emeralds from Minas Gerais, and agates from Rio Grande do Sul. I realize I have experienced a great personal transformation. I have more patience for art than for logic!'

Beautiful, functional art. Each coaster has a one-of-a-kind pink agate, each with its own unique, exquisite beauty. The wood is equally beautiful and beautifully worked. I would have returned these had they not utter lived up to the high price point, but once in hand, these are impossible not to fall in love with. I have them on my living room coffee table in their coaster-holders (I bought two sets, each with six coasters) because they are truly little pieces of art. Guests constantly pick them up and admire. Highly recommend for yourself or for a show-stopping gift.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? More beautiful in person
