This is a Granato (Garnet) grade Maxima with an 18k Gold Band.
However it's a unique shape which is unlike anything we've seen
brfore from Ser Jacopo.
It will stand in place to allow its massive quanityies of gtraight
grain and birdseye to be examined.
The Birdseye at the top of the bowl is extraordinary.
A very special big pipe.
