Quartzite Purple Steed Sculpture


Lepidolite quartzite

12" tall x 6" wide

35 lbs.

Often times I don't choose to carve one particular thing, but what I see, that is already there. Taking the least amount of stone away from the piece that I find or come across. Generally I wouldn't carve purple horses! But this is what this piece "is'. The purple pony.

This piece I chose from many 'chunks' when I was at Yardcorocks in Florida. I hauled it up to Baltimore along with many other different rocks I bought there. The original shape was not a whole lot different from what it became, considering the rock is fairly expensive I wasn't into a lot of extra waste.
