For those of you in the market for luxury Mac accessories, we have the Calypso CrystalDock for iPhone and iPod touch. Made of lead crystal glass, the CrystalDock is handcrafted in Europe by way of a 300-year-old crystal making method.
A single CrystalDock, which begins life as a molten ball of crystal glass mass, takes several days and more than 15 pairs of hands to produce. Of course, this process is necessary in order to meet Calypso's goal of making "a dock that fits your life perfectly."
You, the discerning crystal-tech enthusiast, have four types of CrystalDocks to choose from. The Aurora is deep sandblasted, finely polished, and hand-painted with platinum, which is why it is the most expensive of the bunch at $349. It's also a limited-edition offering, with only 999 pieces to be produced. For the entry-level crystal fiend, The Beau, Celestia, and Dune models are $199 each and feature different patterns carved into them.
The next logical question is what would look good on a desk with a crystal iPhone dock? The answer: a pair of $1,000 Harman Kardon crystal computer speakers, of course.
