Gemstone Bonsai
Tell A Friend
Firmly rooted in genuine amethyst, this enchanting Gemstone Bonsai with copper roots, trunk and branches bears gemstones rather than leaves or fruit. Made in China. Natural variations will occur.
Similar to bonsai-themed artworks in our Freer Gallery of Art, the gemstones celebrate the 2,500 minerals and gems displayed in our Janet Annenberg Hooker Hall of Geology, Gems and Minerals.
5.5"h. x 3.5"w. 3.15"d.

"Need to take the time to repackage and return. I have always been delighted wiyj my Smithsonian purchases, but stones in the tree are brown tones and very drab. Not the vibrane puple, pinks and greens pictured."

"I had bought one for my daughter which had a mix of colors,including blues, pinks, so I ordered this for myself and was dismayed that it was all brown stones, appearing to be like a dead tree. I am very disappointed."

"The amethyst base is a very pretty color with shades of purple but I wish there were more bright and light colored gemstones. I like the twisted wire trunk and branches. They are easy and fun to arrange."

"This 'tree' is only about 2" tall. Very disappointing for the cost. I am certainly returning it."
