The chalice is decorated with one precious ston. The top of the chalice is completed by a cup that does not have a crystal base, as is the case with Lukman’s chalice. The chalice is made of tombac. The inscription on the underside of the stand: »Dar očeta P. Simona Ašič Rock Springs Wyo. ZDA. 31.VIII.1930/ Izd.Ivan Kregar Ljubljana.« (Gift of father of Fr Simon Ašič)
