COMMENTS: Absolutely the finest Chinese carved boulder opal of Abraham Lincoln ! One of a kind for the sophisticated collector. No detail overlooked ! Carved into the wood base is the artist KhingTiang Liem. A very talented and successful sculptor/artist from Hong Kong who obviously has an appreciation of one of the greatest Presidents of the United States. Based on limited info from a video on youtube this dates back to the late 1970s to mid 1980s. His work was important enough to be chosen to have a piece of carved quartz carried into space by the first Chinese Astronaut. This huge opal measures 6" wide x 4" tall ! Weighs a staggering 4704 carats ! Just shy of 3 pounds ! Once in a lifetime purchase ! When it sells, you'll never see another !
