LARGE PEWTER FRILL NECK LIZARD
When the Frill Neck Lizard is excited or threatened, the brightly coloured frill, which normally folds down around the lizards neck, expands suddenly, while the mouth opens wide. It eats grasshoppers and insects and lives in thick vegetation and pandanus palms, in hot areas
Since earlier times, craftsmen have been extracting a small amount of a shiny precious metal (Tin) from a mass of rock and then using that metal to manufacture articles to decorate their homes. Tin is the fourth most valuable metal in general use, after Platinum, Gold and Silver and has been used to manufacture Pewter since those early times. Modern Pewter is an alloy that contains 92% tin, 6% Antimony and 2% Copper. The Antimony is used to harden the alloy and the Copper is used to improve its workability. To maintain the finish of your Pewter article, wash in hot water using liquid soap and rinse in almost boiling water. Immediately dry and polish with a soft cloth. Proudly crafted in Australia by Aradon Pty Ltd using Australian Tin.
