Views from four directions of a spirally carved deer antler tine that is set with a natural quartz crystal.
About seven inches long. The pitch of the spiral was matched to the slightly undulating shape of the tine.

The antler is stained and given a hand-rubbed beeswax blend finish. The quartz crystal, being natural, has a complicated shape, but was chosen partly because the apparent curve of the crystal (actually due to multiple plane surfaces) matches that of the antler tine. These pictures were made with a scanner, which has resulted in the tip of the antler looking darker or lighter than the rest due to distance from the scanning light, and the clear tip of the crystal to appear dark due to it refracting the light.

Thank you. :)

Someone else has already inquired. I'll need to talk with them first.

I really like them. I have little use for such tools, but I appreciate them. Especially 3rd one.
