Bismuth

This nice piece of Bismuth could end up in the tertiary branch position.

Silicon

This hunk of Silicon is also a candidate for the secondary branch position.


Pyrite

Both of these pieces of Pyrite are candidates for the secondary branch position (the short branch below and to the left of the primary branch).

 


Meteorite

May 25, 2008

I’m 99% sure this is a meteorite.  It is heavy for its size, attracts magnets, and looks like other meteorites I’ve seen.  It is the third candidate for the primary (tallest) branch on the Wizard Styx 2.0.


Amythest Crystal

This large Amythest crystal is also a candidate for the primary (tallest) branch of the Wizard Styx 2.0


Quartz Crystal balls

The second ball is actually about 1/3 larger than the first one.  It also has viewer flaws which explains the much less interesting picture.  They are both candidates for the primary (tallest) branch on the Wizard Styx 2.0.


Wizard Styx 2.0 (In Progress)

May 25, 2008

This Wizard Styx is being carved from a cutting from my Myrtle.  It is tall and massive and is intended to be a display piece as opposed to a ‘working’ hiking staff.  The plaited pattern in the third picture is of my own design.  The following posts will be pictures of the items I’m considering for mounting on the ends of the three branches.
