Orange Calcite Onyx Bowl 36x28x11cm 4.6kg Mexico

Availability: In stock (1)

Backlight this hand carved Orange Onyx Bowl from Mexico to reveal the natural banding in the stone.

When water, rich in the minerals calcite and iron oxide, emerges from a spring, the minerals precipitate out of the water to form calcite crystals. Calcite is usually clear or white, but iron oxide gives the calcite a warm, honey/orange color. The banding in this bowl shows the waxing and waning abundance of iron oxide in the water.

The bowl is 36x28x11cm and weighs 4.6kg.
