These are hand carved from Black Chlorite (Argylite), a rare form because of gold veining, hand quarried by me in the interior of BC in a sustainable and eco-friendly fashion. They can also be done by any black semi-hard stone if you have a preference.
I make them from a single piece of stone, but people check to see if they aren't glued together anyway. Used for ornamental purposes wherever needed. Larger ones can be made for garden, patio, and outside sculpture as well, but are more expensive.
