Cylinder Vase 7x4 White Onyx
With this hand-lathed onyx vase by Meadow Birch Gallery timelessness takes on new meaning. The vase is wonderfully unique as is the composition and complexity of ancient calcite crystals (revealed from the fine sanding of the stone surface). No polishes or chemicals are used in production of this piece."
White Onyx occurs where pure calcite crystals are formed and remain uncolored by minerals or stains. The stone can be pure white or translucent with occasional brown banding. This onyx is the product of millennia of slow precipitation of calcite crystals. In this geologic process, molecules of calcium carbonate are dissolved and carried in underground water. Eventually the carbonate reaches a place where certain circumstances allow the minerals to come out of solution and slowly precipitate as crystals.n
