It was sold at the American Association of Woodturners annual symposium as part of their fundraising live auction in June, 2010.

The top finial lifts off to reveal a small reliquary. The lower finial holds an open sided “egg” containing a small suspended ornament. The crushed rock is glued in place to prevent spilling. The whole piece can be turned upside down without dislodging the crushed rock base.
