Mineral Inlaid Humming Bird Plate #343

Mineral Inlaid Humming Bird Plate #343

Piece #343 – Holly / Calcite – 8″ by 1″ – SOLD

 

This Calcite humming bird on holly is quite stunning. The humming bird was cut into the holly 1/4 inch deep with a high speed dental drill, using a very small carbide cutting bit. The calcite mineral colors were very carefully selected to match nature’s true colors. The completed piece was polished using TripoliĀ and white diamond paste on a high speed polishing buffer. It was then sealed with lacquer and polished again.
