Osmium. Who can honestly say they’ve heard of, let alone know anything about it? Well, Master Maker Edgar used this RARE RARE RARE precious metal extensively to adorn this project violin. I believe he mentions that high grade osmium sells for 4-500 dollars per piece, and the violin has upwards of 5 to 600 pieces. Plus gold, silver, sapphires, diamonds…
The final value he puts at around $3 million. Fascinating. Watch part one here:

And, finally, Edgar is like a proud papa, and rightly so. What a beautiful work of art!
