Three noble materials ... that together present an object self-contained in time. It is here now ... it will be here in a thousand years

Spectacular dining center table cast in bronze with 7 ft 6” glass top. Inset within the bronze is a giant semi-precious Fluorite stone – mined, cut and polished in the late Ch’ing Dynasty (early part of the 20th century) probably from the Huan region of China. The table can be used as an impressive entrance hall center table or as a dramatic dining table. It has an existing glass top but is not limited to this size. The base is able to accommodate a larger glass top.

History of Fluorite:
Fluorite has been utilised over the centuries in many forms … the ancient Egyptians used it on statues and in carving scarabs. The Romans believed that drinking alcoholic beverages from vessels carved of Fluorite kept the drinker from getting drunk (see the British Museum Collection of carved Fluorite Cups : the Crawford Cup, 1st-2nd Century AD). Artefacts of carved fluorite were found in the ruins of Pompeii. In the 18th Century, Fluorite was powdered in water to relieve the symptoms of kidney disease and the Chinese have used it in carvings for more than 300 years, believing that it was excellent for treating and protecting against disease.
