Tourmaline Box

This Brazilian rosewood box houses a gem grade elbaite tourmaline wand. since tourmaline is a hexagonal crystal structure, I made the box in a hexagonal shape. The wraparound inlay on the surface depicts the molecular structure of the gem, and is made from red abalone heart, mother of pearl, silver, opals, garnets and zircons. Inside, the crystal is nestled in white velvet, and the box is finished with French polish.

Dimensions: 6" long, 2.25" deep, 2" high. The tourmaline is 2.875" x .5" x .375".
