Amethyst ball Lilac Geode Magic
NOVICA, in association with National Geographic, offers thousands of limited edition and one-of-a-kind gifts, jewelry, and home decor treasures handmade by master artists and artisans throughout the world. Featuring the sparkling fascination of a natural geode, this beautiful crystal ball reveals the radiance of amethyst. Guena sculpts a polished sphere of magical beauty. Amethyst represents a connection with spirituality and the force of transmutation from its violet flame. Artisan Info: "In 1980 I left behind a career as an accountant and I dove into the artistic universe. I began as an artisan's assistant and a sculptor, and gradually I became fascinated with gems and crystals. Soon after, I was exhibiting my work at local art fairs and markets. "Despite the fact my academic formation revolved around sitting behind a desk, now I can tell you I could never go back to a technical or bureaucratic job I have more patience for art than for logic! "Nowadays I travel throughout Brazil in search of crystals from Bahia, emeralds from Minas Gerais, agates from Rio Grande do Sul, and many other naturally occurring wonders. I continuously learn new techniques and craft different products. I realize I have experienced a great personal transformation. Although many times difficult, I have learned that the path of an artisan is a path without return in which a person experiences beauty to the maximum, as well as moments of singular freedom.
