This Calcite sculpture is reminiscent of the Japanese art known as Kintsugi, where broken pieces of china are glued back together using urushi lacquer, derived from the sap of the Chinese lacquer tree. Of course, this fabulous piece was carved by Robin Antar from a single block of honeycomb calcite. As you can see, the stone reflects light and appears to radiate sunlight. The stone was cut, ground, shaped and polished to a 12000 grit finish, while leaving certain sides raw in Ms. Antar’s signature style.
At over a foot wide and five inches deep, it's large enough to hold some treasured gemstones or covered candies but I say, leave well enough alone.
