Once again, inspired one of ESW's favorite movie trilogies, Indiana Jones, is this "Black Death" Hematite Carved Skull that has been seamlessly bonded to an Apophyllite Crystal from India. Snaking around the skull is a LIVE Medusae Air Plant.

The Apophyllite crystal has a beautiful metallic white and clear luminance to it. When light shines through the crystal, little rainbows can be found dancing all around it.

Beautifully contrasted with the stark white crystal is a heavy weight Hematite stone, which has been carved into a dark grey/metallic black skull.

"Black Death" has been living in shadows for many years. When it finally emerged from its dark world, a very suspicious looking "Medusae" species Air Plant decided to Nest its tentacle like leaves around it and permanently planted itself into its new home :)

Apophyllite specimens are found in ancient lava and basalt flows. The crystals grow in the now solid cavities, called amygdules or vesicles, formed by air bubbles when the rock was molten. Apophyllite is also found in the voids in the contact metamorphic zone limestones that surround intrusive rocks.

Hematite is a common mineral consisting of iron oxide. This mineral was also found in mass quantities on the Planet Mars.

Air Plants, also known as Tillandsia, are very low maintenance. They don’t require soil to grow, only moderate light, proper air flow and a good soak every week.

To water, just mist or soak with plant attached. The crystals enjoy a bath every now & then too ;)

Detailed care instructions will be sent with purchase.

A FREE 4oz bottle of ESW Air Plant Fertilizer is included with purchase!


Entire piece measures approx 6"H x 4.5"W x 2"D


All ESW designs are created by me personally. A lot of love and a ton of time goes into deconstructing each piece and then reconstructing it into the creations you see. Every ESW design is original and almost all are One-of-a-Kind collectors pieces. Their value is calculated by the rarity, age, history, condition, cost of all materials, labor, and the overall demand for pieces from that collection. All purchases are beautifully wrapped and securely packaged with the utmost care and extra charm (*
