Blue Goldstone Bear by Hiram Peynetsa

$ 500.00

A big expressive standing upright bear with turquoise inlaid eyes, carved by Hiram Peynetsa in blue goldstone. Goldstone is a man-made glass. It is made from silica, cobalt, and other metal oxides, which are heated, allowed to crystallize, and then cooled. It is during the heating process that the crystals are formed. The use of cobalt results in crystals with a silvery appearance and the crystals are suspended in a strongly colored matrix of the corresponding ionic color, resulting in blue goldstone. This bear is a dark blue in coloration with a silver crystal that appears when you hold the bear up to the light.
