This is a rather unusual shape for a bottle. The bell shape, the simple pattern design that runs all the way around the bottle, and how extremely well hollowed it is, all attracted me to this bottle.

The pictures don't show the glassy sheen of the bottle (probably because they are in full sun), but it has that wonderful watery texture. The markings of the stone itself are beautiful too.

I held it up to the light so you can see how well hollowed it is - hollowed all the way to the very edges - even at the bottom.

Measures 5.7cm tall without the top and this one I think has a top of jasper.
