What is Fauxlenite?
Fauxlenite® is the trademarked name chosen by Stacy Brown to label his artwork consisting of replicated crystal structures, carved of different stone types, to form the look of a real occurrence in nature.
The first of the word FAUXLENITE, is “Faux” – as in fake, not real. The ending of “ite” gives the idea of an oxygenated crystal structure.
“The fake elemental symbol was created to enhance the overall visual package of fake crystals with a fake scientific chemical composition. stands for bullshit and/or S.B., my initials backwards.”
- SiO2 – is carved from silicated stones (Fire Fauxlenite, Clear, White, etc.)
- KAISiO2 – is carved from granites/feldspars (Mahogany Fauxlenite, Watermelon)
- PbZnCuFeS(Cd)AgAuSiO2 – is carved from “Pride of the West” ‘Zebra Ore’ (Zebra Fauxlenite).
So, the word FAUXLENITE was created to ONLY represent my Artwork – what I personally created, carved, pieced together and signed.
