Jupiter

You can't tell from the image, but this vase was about 750mm in diameter, crafted from solid stone (quartz?).

 

It lives in the Taipei 101 observation deck craft shop, next to a jade cabbage of similar weighty proportions.

 

The fractured texture, and coloured mineral seams drew my eye -- the seams appearing abruptly on the horizon, then gradually fading to black.
