Magnetic Mineral Sculpture: Quartz - Maple Burl & Gemstone

This sculpture is made to depict a quartz formation using Maple Burl, inlaid with stone, with the 3 pieces balancing on a driftwood base. Each Maple piece is hand faceted into quartz points, with the natural pattern voids inlaid with a dark Azurite and a green stone found hiking in Central Oregon (we call it 'Oregon Green Stone'). Each piece then has a magnet set into it with a corresponding magnet in the base. All the poles of the magnets face the same directions so that each piece of the sculpture is interchangeable on the base. With 3 individual points to this particular sculpture there are a variety different ways to feature this piece.
