Here’s a box with a dragonfly on the lid. Wings are turquoise, body is malachite, eyes are rhodochrosite with speckles of turquoise and outlining on the wings and the legs/antennae are done with powdered ebony.

WTH ? Dude, this is TOP shelf material here. You have really hit the mark on this. The inlay is absolute perfection. Really, really nice artistic style and beautiful craftsmanship. Homerun!
