Lot 9: Elvis Presley's Blue Geode Paperweight from His Desk at Graceland
29 October 2016
Memphis, TN, USALive Auction
Generous to a fault, all someone had to do was make an off-handed remark about liking or admiring something and Elvis was likely to immediately hand it over to them. It happened time and again over the years, and that's how Sam Thompson came to own this beautiful blue geode paperweight that once sat upon the desk outside Elvis' bedroom in Graceland. The geode interior is formed from millions of years of interplay between moisture, chemical elements and pressure to create a presentation unique to every sample. A stunning, and literally timeless, geologic personal artifact from Elvis. The geode measures approximately 4 by 7 inches (10.16 by 17.78 cm). Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
Condition Report: The 7" wide 4" tall paperweight is in like-new condition, as expected for a geologic relic.
