6.12 ct. Quartz by Tom Munsteiner

Color:  Colorless Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Brazil Cut:  Custom Carving
Treatments:  None  Measurements:  17 x 12 mm

We have seen variations on this Munsteiner design once or twice before and it remains one of our personal favorites.  It is such an intricate and bold design - the interplay of shapes reminding one of the details of Louis Sullivan or very early Frank Lloyd Wright.  This works particularly well with the starkly colorless Quartz which alternates between fully polished and matte surfaces.  Additionally, there is something of a hidden surprise as this is not just regular Quartz - looking closely you will see a handful of very thin needles of Rutile - yes, this is actually a rutilated piece! 

As always, the polish is essentially perfect - just what you would expect from the long tradition of Idar-Oberstien work.  Unlike some of these Munsteiner pieces, this gem has a very regular outline (essentially a rectangular tablet) and would be easily worked into a jewelry design.  With signed certificate.
