This work was inspired by the Root Beer Selenite that Connie found at the International Gem Show in Tucson. Its translucent yet warm color and depth made it a joy to work with in a vertical format. It glows when the light shines through it. The repetition of the many textures, opulent colors, and jewel-like patterns were inspired by the work of Gustav Klimt.
Green calcite, turquoise, jasper slabs, pyrite, jadeite, aventurine, green phantom and clear quartz crystal points, river rock, tiger’s eye, and the most beautiful yellow jasper that Connie had ever seen were also used to create this work.
