Superior quality glass elephant featuring gold accents that seem to blend-in, sits atop a 3 1/2" x 2" x 1 1/2" geode of amethyst. The total height (geode + elephant) is about 4 1/2" tall. This unique piece of art makes for a wonderful paper-weight or decoration. The elephant balances a crystal ball in the air with its trunk. Trunks in the air signify good luck, while amethyst signifies prosperity, among other things.
Geodes are geological secondary structures which occur in certain sedimentary and volcanic rocks. They are themselves of sedimentary origin formed by chemical precipitation. (Wikipedia)
