Very Simple and elegant, this puck paperweight comes in Jade or Starfire Crystal. We sand carve it from behind so the etching has a 3D look and sparkles beautifully. We don't suggest paint-filling the etch on this piece as it may show signs of wear. Comes in a nice gift box.
Starfire Crystal is lead free, and also has low iron content. The removal of this pigmentation results in a product that is equal in clarity to all but the finest optically clear crystal. It is manufactured in varying thicknesses up to ¾". Due to the extreme clarity of Starfire Crystal, the highly polished bevels and edges create a beautiful reflects, with a slight blue sparkle.
The iron ore content in the silica sand used to produce Jade Crystal results in the distinctive green tint which has become so popular in the trophy industry. Jade Crystal is very hard, facilitating steep bevels and capable of being finished to a very high polish level.
Jade Crystal is manufactured in varying thicknesses up to ¾". The thicker the piece, the more distinctive the green tint, especially when viewed from the edge. The contrast of color created by Deep Etching has made Jade Crystal a very popular choice for Award and Recognition pieces.
