Pinolite was thought to only exist in Austria but in the Canadian mountains in 2018 gold miners actually found pinolith there, an exciting discovery. Pinolite is a semi-precious gemstone consisting of magnesite, dolomite, and graphite together forming a striking pattern. Also called pinolith, this stone gets its name from the pine cone-like patterns formed by the slow cooling of the three minerals ages ago. Brian Yatsattie's approximately 3 1/2" long, 3" wide and 3/4" tall jet-eyed sea Turtle smoothly sculpted from Canadian pinolite extends a powerful flipper to propel gracefully through the great ocean's waters.
