Hawk; Falcon


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This falcon is a carved quartz with a smoky hue with interior faults which display interference colors (resembling iridescence of glass) and has characteristics of rainbow or iris quartz. The lack of a perforation as well as the rough surface, suggest that the piece was never finished. There are slight chippings that show fractures, which is typical of things made out of quartz.
