The base is of mesquite, the fissures handled in the same manner with epoxy and turquoise. It has a beautiful ray-like grain. The dark mesquite is a beautiful contrast to the lighter wood of the egg. Both pieces have been given a final coat of Renaissance wax and buffed to a soft glow. It measures 5/8" high and about 2 3/4" square.
This would make a very special Easter gift for someone.
