Magnetic Mineral Sculpture: Cuboctohedron - Buckeye Burl With Stone Inlay


The shapes in this sculpture are in the classic lapidary form of an Archimedean solid, the Cuboctohedron. The sculpted pieces are made from Buckeye Burl from the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the natural pattern voids are inlaid with Green Turquoise and Muscovite Mica. The Cuboctohedrons balance on their driftwood base using magnets to hold them in place. This feature gives the sculpted pieces the ability to rotate in place and be ordered and displayed a variety of ways.
