(Look below for additional comments.)

These are stone flower sculptures (bouquets) that are carved under water using diamond tools. They include treated colored leaves of steel and brass, as well as larger gemstones and fossils to highlight the bases. The blossoms include Premium Rose Quartz from the Custer, South Dakota Area (some of the highest quality in the World), Classic Yellow Marble and Classic Pink Marble from Western Canada, White Colorado Alabaster from the Fort Collins area, rich Green Soapstone from Southwest Montana, and renown White Marble from Eastern Alabama, among many others. The bases are created from common and semi-rare stones that are highlighted with Ammonite fossils and gemstones of light green Jade, dark green Jade,Tiger's Eye, Amethyst, Emerald, Zircon, Ruby and golden Citrine, among many others. The variations in colors seen on some of the bases and blossoms are natural elements that were deposited during the early stages of Earth's creation. Many of the semi-rare stones were selected personally, in the local areas, by the artist. The entire sculptures are coated with crystal clear acrylic to protect from stains and to bring out the beautiful natural color of the stones. All are signed by the artist, John Foster. If you decide to purchase a piece of this display of natural beauty, we hope you will enjoy it for an entire lifetime.
