    Product Features:
    • Colors: Green, brown
    • Materials: Serpentine, calcite, acrylic fabric
    • Base included
    • Sphere dimensions: 2.4 inches diameter
    • Base dimensions: 0.6 inches high x 1.6 inches diameter

    Story Behind the Art:
    Peruvian artisan Cesar Gonzales has worked as a stone carver since 1988. He 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.'

      This is a gorgeous Earth-like sphere; solid and beautiful to look at. I held it in my hand and just stared at it when it first arrived. It's very heavy and because it is handmade in Peru, it seems that much more special. I'm a rock-lover and this one really caught my eye. I gave it to my Dad for Christmas, and I hope he puts it by his computer and loves it as much as I do. (I almost kept it for myself!!) :o)

      This looks nothing like the photo. There is no sheen or marbling. It's just an ugly piece of stone. Luckily my sister liked it enough to save me the return process.
