Astral Vessel 0176
Astral Vessel 0176
This special Vessel features a charcoal-finish Sterling finial cast from a relief engraving by Amayak Stepanyan made exclusively for Astral Vessels. It's topped off with a high-dome Blue Chalcedony cabochon from California USA weighing 3.22 ct. and set in a lathe-turned and millgrained 18k White Gold bezel.
The 8 Acanthus Leaves carved into the finial align with 8 double incisions that were Rose Carved into the top surface of the cap by our 1915 Rose Engine. These two patterns are are synced with the 24-wave pattern engraved on the side of the cap by the same machine, which in turn align with the 24 flutes carved into the vessel body by our 1875 Goyen Ornamental Lathe.
The varied but neutral palette of the metal components provides the perfect background for the subtle warmth of the translucent blue gemstone. A portrait of harmony and luminescence!
This vessel is exclusively available for Astral Retailers.
Diameter 1-3/8" X 2-1/8" Tall
Our Astral Vessels are made from modern aircraft-grade aluminum that we carve, engrave and ornament using a variety of metalworking techniques, from ancient to modern. Our designs will sparkle like new for years thanks to the anodizing that illuminates, colors and hardens the surfaces, shielding the vessel from corrosion, abrasion and light impact.
Treating your vessels with care and taking simple precautions can go a long way toward preserving their beauty and function. The pouch and packaging included with your vessel offer significant protection during transportation or storage.
To prevent damage to non-metal components from thermal expansion and contraction, ALWAYS STORE YOUR ASTRAL VESSEL AT ROOM TEMPERATURE.
