The Golden Pink Sunset Rose is carved from the rarest of delicately translucent and colored Alabasters of the softest pinks and shaded greens. Both the full bloom Rose and bud are single stone carvings, sculpted from a extraordinary discovery in the California desert mountains, a place now completely unavailable for prospecting.

Gathered in the wilds of Utah, found in a vanishing vein that one could not even call ‘a deposit’, the leaves are carved from the rarest of green Alabasters and are structurally arranged into branches. The Golden Pink Sunset Rose is my nineteenth Rose sculpture in 35 years of carving.
