Amber Sankara Stone Prototype Indiana Jones & The Temple Of Doom

This is an original prototype Sankara Stone created for the production of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. The Sankara Stone is the central MacGuffin of the film, and two different styles are seen in the movie–one that appears to be stone, actually brown resin, and a “glowing” or illuminating style, which was created from a semi-translucent amber resin. The creation of the amber versions represented one of the significant design challenges from the film. It wasn”t enough for the stones to simply be cast in an amber-tinted resin, they needed to have a depth and a texture to them to make them visually unique. Various resin casting techniques were experimented with to achieve different looks, including mixing various materials into the casting resin. This is an original prototype stone created in the Plaster Shop on the film, for consideration as the final design. The stone is cast in clear amber resin with reflective discs inside, which gives it a distinct and unique look. Bubbles from air and possibly water further enhance the look. This piece was acquired from a head of department on the film who was integral to the creation of this prop. It measures approximately 5″ x 3″ x 3″ (13cm x 8cm x 8cm) and is in excellent condition.
