This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

Product Features:
  • Punctuated by sparkling crystal prisms, pyrite egg radiates the mystique of natural gems
  • Cesar Gonzales cuts and polishes the stone with expert ease, showcasing its unique allure
  • Sculpture displayed on base of polished calcite
Story Behind the Art:

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. He travels to mines in the central Peruvian sierra to acquire minerals and materials of all kinds. '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.'

  • Much smaller than expected!
    Verified Purchase

    The item is much smaller than expected - it's actually the size of a small chicken egg. The base was white (not offwhite as shown) and poorly constructed - the felt at the bottom wasn't cut to size and didn't stick to the bottom. This was meant as a gift but I'd be embarrassed to give it as a gift so am returning.

  • Easter egg
    Verified Purchase

    The egg itself is really very nice. My six year old nephew liked it a lot when I gave it to him for Easter. I put it on a different base because the base it came with did not hold it in an upright position.
