Absolutely beautiful.....

Too often works of art ( talented works of art ) the maker is not given an ataboy..

Because of this post ( Thank you laconic ) I sent him a message through eBay telling him what a great job..thumbs up..

Credit where credit is due....

WOW, I take my hats off to the maker of this Gem Masterpiece. I can barely open a bag of chips on a Friday night without cutting myself , let alone even contemplate doing something so incredible as this. I've placed a bid on this item, I'll let you know if I win!

i guesse it could easely go in the thousand for this item, since the effort and quality was put into this great peice of art. I hope he gets the price he deserves.

You would think a coin dealer would snap this up as a center piece for a store, nice work.

I absolutely love this! I keep going back to look again and again. Just no funds available to get it at this time or I would be all over it.
