A genuine Ethiopian 50 Matonas coin showing the triumphant Lion of Judah has been inset into the top. The obverse is visible on the inside of the cap, revealing the portrait of Emperor Haille Selassie II when the vessel is opened.
This sparkling and unique container features a Rose Engine-carved cap with an ornamental grip that frames the central coin. The body of the vessel was carved with the same antique machine to create the boldly contoured and fascinating pattern below.

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.
