Gorgeous feather-like patterns are chatoyant inclusions that occur naturally in seraphinite, a prized silicate with mica mineral found only in Russia. Sometimes referred to as "angel wing stone" the name seraphinite is derived from the biblical Seraphs or Seraphim who are good spirit creatures in the heavens. Christopher Sandoval's divine Turtle
or tortoise has been elegantly hewn from a stunning seraphinite specimen, inlaid with turquoise eyes and a gorgeously etched carapace. About 2 3/8" long, 2" wide and 5/8" tall.
