This adorable Cauldron was handcrafted by me from start to finish. It features real 22K Gold. When you move this piece through the light it has an iridescent glow just like a Rose Quartz Aura Crystal. This price can not go in the microwave as it has real metal on it. It can go in the Dishwasher, but I highly recommend treating it like fine china. The gold will start to fade if you put it in the dishwasher. It’s food safe and completely functional.
