RARE Apple 10 Year Award made from 14.5 lb block of highly refractive lead glass
RARE Apple 10 Year Award, beautifully crafted out of a 14.5-pound block of highly refractive lead glass. In original packaging, with original item description envelope containing the following text. The fabrication of this award begins with a 14.5-pound block of highly refractive lead glass that bends and captures light better than ordinary glass. The surfaces are then planed and polished to eliminate distortions and imperfections, creating what is essentially a high-quality optical lens with a unique brilliance and sparkle. A rough outline of the Apple logo is carved into the glass using a high-pressure waterjet, and a computerized milling machine is used to cut the edges of the logo precisely.
In the end, the Apple logo is cut perfectly perpendicular to the top and bottom of the award. And finally, the interior is sandblasted to create a striking white appearance that's also soft to the touch.
There is a tiny, almost invisible crack on the bottom right corner, it is otherwise in perfect condition. This is a rare item, and finding one with original packaging in such great condition is even rarer.
