Rock Stop

Many wines get better with age, and the same is true for this wine stopper. Made of a thin slice of Brazilian agate (formed when silica-laden groundwater passes through air pockets in cooling lava, ) these stoppers' luminous bands of color display their many years of development. These stoppers are vibrant, rich, and polished, but still maintain some of their natural rocky exterior, making them a unique hostess gift and a stunning addition to your home bar. Designed and assembled by Anna Rabinowicz in New York.

Sold individually. Some colors enhanced.

Take a studio tour and see where these bottle stoppers were designed.

A fragment of a shell, a colorful stone, a peculiar gourd—Anna Rabinowicz's creative process often begins with objects found on her trips to Brazil. "These pieces sit on my desk for weeks, sometimes months, while I study them and think about what they might become. Then I begin to sketch and build models; each comes to life as inspiration for a new piece," she says.

After studying Industrial Design at the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem, Anna received her masters degree in Design and Engineering from Stanford University. Her design company explores the use of natural, traditional materials and their juxtaposition with high-tech manufacturing techniques.

    I think this will be a perfect wedding gift for my friend, my only complaint was that it was much smaller than I had expected and for the price. Oh well, I will surely be coming back!

    Comments about Agate Bottle Stoppers:

    When I bought this I was really excited about getting it. I love geodes and have been accumulating geode collectables for years. I have to say that it works quite well for its intended purpose and is very attractive while fulfilling this purpose. The only thing I have a problem with is its size. The one I received was so incredably tiny. I normally wouldn't take off 2 stars for this reason. .so I hope this attests to how incredably small it actually is.

          Not as impressive in real life. Pretty but not worth [$]. I'm still on the fence about giving it as a gift.

                The gift wrapping was great, but the box inside was covered with dust and there was still glue from the price tag on the gift. The agate is not shiny.
