Eudialyte Box
Stone Source: Kola Peninsula
Murmanskaya Oblast', Northern Region

This cute little box has been hewn out of Eudialyte, a rare mineral. The material is coveted for its rich "ruby red" coloration. Eudialyte occurs in a matrix of black and white rock, visible here, which creates a powerful combination and a beautiful product. The inside is lined with black velvet, and the box is finished with a silver-plated piano hinge that has been fitted over the entire lid and base. Due to the style of the hinge, the lid does not lay flush against the base, but with only a slight variation. The Eudialyte was even cut and used for the feet. There is a gap apparent on the underside, but, otherwise, this box is in overall good condition.
Overall Measurements: 4.50 x 2.75 x 1.50 inches (11.43 x 6.98 x 3.81 cm)

Provenance: Central Coast Collection 

[Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
