This White Horn bird skull has permanently nested on a large pedestal of Green Tourmaline in a Matrix of Quartz thats formed like Gypsum-Selenite and glistens like Mica. No Tourmaline piece is ever exactly alike. In this exceptionally large and One Of A Kind mineral matrix, there are several types of quartz as well.

The tourmaline grows out from every part of this magnificent mineral. Most of the tourmaline is green but there are small pockets of blue & black as well. This giant mineral is incredibly drusey all over!! Watch the natural light hit this stone and have it shimmer before your eyes with all its dancing colors.

INCLUDED WITH PURCHASE:

• Hornbill Bird Skull on Tourmaline Quartz
• GIFT WRAP!!

PRODUCT DETAILS:

• Stone measures 7"L x 4"W x 3.5"H and weighs over 2lbs!!!
• Bird Skull measures 6"L x 1.5"W x 2.5"H

• The bird skull is not permanently attached and be can rearranged on its magnificent nest, making it very versatile. (also safe to ship!)
• The white-thighed hornbill is a large and highly vocal bird, with a long, slightly decurved beak, topped with a large and distinctive growth known as a casque. The function of this strange structure is debated, though it may provide support for the long beak, help in attracting a mate, or serve to amplify the bird’s raucous call.
• Tourmaline has many industrial, scientific and technological uses. One of the attributes of Tourmaline is that it can induce electrical charges by applying pressure against the vertical axis. This special quality is known as piezoelectricity and other minerals such as quartz also have this attribute. Tourmaline can also have the attribute of *pyroelectricity*, this is similar to a battery, where one end of the mineral has a negative charge and the opposite end has a positive charge. (soooO science geekin cool!!!!)
• The crystallography of Gypsum can be seen on the *coral like* bottom of this stone. In a small number of "Gypsum" specimens, water gets trapped inside a crystal in a hollow channel while the crystal forms. When such a crystal is rotated, a water "bubble" moves around inside it toward the lowest point in the channel. Such specimens are considered a **mineralogical oddity**, and are sought by collectors

Please Note:
EarthSeaWarrior greatly values wildlife and sealife and would never intentionally harm a living creature for the purpose of our creations. Our "real" specimens come from different sources that have ethically collected the animal after it died and sold it as a means to recycle what is left behind.
