18th Century Italian Wood Candlestick Decorated with a Crystal and Shells
18th century Italian (Region of Liguria) wood candlestick decorated with a calcite crystal in matrix, a specimen from the Elmwood Mine, and gold leaf shells. This mine produces some of the most finest crystallized examples of calcite crystals and "are unequaled by those from any other locality," according to the "American Mineral Treasures" (pg. 337). The gold leaf is hand-applied to the shells and coordinates with the gold detail on the candlestick.
