This lovely little tree literally took my breath away when I was first able to get the copious packing off... (Be patient and careful as your unwrap this, folks.) I wanted a small centerpiece for my dining room table - one that I could see above to carry on conversations. The tiny brass branches dance with every little movement of the table. The amethyst has every shade within the geode base. Of course, every one will be slightly different, but I was impressed, for the price, at how many of the deep purple crystals were embedded. It is delicate and diminutive - Don't expect a show-stopping huge piece. But everyone who has sat at my table has to comment on it and touch it. It is absolutely beautiful.
