Ruler Selenite with an 18th Century Italian Fragment & Baroque Pearls on Lucite

$1,250Asking Price


Ruler Selenite with an 18th century Italian gold leaf fragment molding and natural forming baroque pearls on a lucite base. Ruler selenite or "selenite logs" are single, prismatic selenite crystals from Morocco that were formed in extensive beds by the evaporation of ocean brine. This mineral is characterized by a silky, pearly luster called satin spar. The piece is put together by Jean O'Reilly Barlow, the artist and creative director of Interi. The date of manufacture reflects when she created the piece and the period shows that the Italian fragment molding is originally 18th century. Interi transforms Italian artifacts and minerals using artistic methods and contemporary interpretations. The selenite log has been mounted onto lucite and adorned with the 18th century Italian fragment molding and intersecting baroque pearls to create an organically modern sculptural piece.
