Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art. Elmhurst, IL.   A memorial to James “Chris” Lizzadro, grandson of the Museum’s founder, combines the art of lapidary and goldsmithing. William Tolliday of London, England created the castle in 1984. On a large slab of Brazilian agate, the 18K gold castle rises from specimens of amethyst, malachite, azurite, and vanadium. Faceted diamonds sparkle in the windows, giving the appearance of an occupied residence, ready to welcome weary travelers.
