Ironwood is known to be dense and hard to carve. However, once formed it is durable, dependable and hard work is rewarded with a beautifully fine grain that polishes with a rich luster.

With eyes of inlaid sterling silver and an offering bundle of a turquoise point with sterling silver and red coral beads, it measures almost 2 1/2" long, 3/4" wide and 1 1/2" tall.
