Carved stones by Alexander Kreis
Figure 1. The morganite carving on the left was inspired by the floating watches in the famous Salvador Dali painting “The Persistence of Memory.” The geometric carvings on the right look simple when the stone is viewed from the base but produce an array of bright reflections and crystalline brilliance when viewed from above.
