Amazonite tailed fox carving 1 by goiku Amazonite tailed fox carving 1 by goiku
More angles:

The final result of the carving project! :D Please read here for more information: [link] The fox design that was used to have this statue created belongs to the talented *VengefulSpirits

The carving is made of genuine blue amazonite. This is a natural stone mineral that has a beautiful azure blue or more reddish color and can be opaque or a slightly translucent.

I am so happy with the final product! :D Although not exactly the same (should be expected) I think the carvers did a very nifty job! Especially considering this is all done with tools that are hard enough to carve diamond. And that's no easy task.


(c) Note that I did NOT make this picture, but I have permission from the supervisor to show them. The pictures rightfully belong to istonescn company

Yes, I really love how this turned out! The company has some really talented carvers and they create so many different animal statues.

I don't actually know yet how much they'll charge me XD Seeing as they wouldn't force me to buy it should I not like it. So payment was preferred after the carving was done. I should get all the details like size, price tomorrow.

They are a wholesale and retail company so their prices for a detailed mineral carving is not too shabby. [link] Here's the website I contacted them through, but they have a ebay shop too.

I know how hard it is to carve something as hard like mineral or gemstone. It's NOT easy ^^; So indeed to me there's plenty enough similarity compared to the orginal picture. They did a fantastic job! :D

Isn't it? :love: I love amazonite. Actually, I'm surprised they found an almost solid blue chunk seeing as the stone is usually a mix of colors. And one can't tell what the stone looks like from the inside. Guess I just got lucky.
