Mineral Specimen #4673 Carved Tigereye
Purchased in Japan in 1981
Ex. Vivian Randall
A carving from very high grade Tigereye in the form of a Japanese shogun. The eyes have been painted with just a touch of green. In closeup photo, the face almost looks like Darth Vader. From Vivian's records, we know the carving was purchased in Japan, but whether it was carved there or in China is unknown. It is not known if the source of the rough was from Australia or South Africa.
Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
5.5 x 3.9 x 1.9 cm
