I love brooches and this Mexican Deco carved leaf is simply divine. I find the carving so enticingly tactile – you just want to run your fingers along the curves, the dips and rises is the stone. And what about that color? The stone is semi-translucent and the light that passes through it bestows a lightness upon it that is not a quality stones are usually associated with. This could be a leaf in those magic maples lining the streets in my home town that have turned amber red as fall approaches…
Size/Weight: 2 3/4″ long by 1 3/8″ wide; 31.1 grams
