This is a museum quality Ancient Roman basalt stone panel depicting three figures | Rare Piece dates to approximately 100 AD | It is made of Basalt, which is a dark, fine-grained volcanic rock, and is typically composed largely of plagioclase with pyroxene and olivine | This ancient artifact has very nice detail for its age | Measures 12.5" x 10.25" | The Romans frequently created sculptures and columns using granite, one of the hardest stones, at about 8 on the Mohs scale. It is the most durable of sculptural stones and, correspondingly, an extremely difficult stone to work. However, Basalt carvings, sculptures, and columns, being even harder than the granite, are less frequently found in the ancient Roman empire, making this artifact truly rare. Dimensions: 12.5 H x 10.25 W Artist or Maker: Ancient Roman Medium: Basalt Stone Date: 100 AD Condition: Very Good - This ancient artifact has very nice detail for its age.
