Zuni Pond Fish

By Leland & Daphne Boone

Animal: Fish, Material: Azurite
This offering is sold.
Azurite is an exquisite mineral with optical properties that inspire creativity. It's been used in jewelry and as a source of paint color since long ago times. Daphne and Leland Boone's healthy fish has been carved from a well-polished specimen of super colorful azurite and inlaid with nicely contrasting eyes of red coral. Its mouth is open to catch a meal and fins have been incised. About 2 1/2" long, 3/8" wide and 1 1/4" tall.
