This fantastic maiden (or Grandmother) is carved from a beautiful specimen of ammolite by Kateri Quandelacy Sanchez. Ammolite is an opalized ammonite fossil, which when held to a light source one can see fiery red variations within this glorious carving. Inlaid turquoise accents and an incised star design can be seen on the front and back of the carving. With an overlaid face of gold lip shell and an expertly etched fringe shawl, it measures almost 2" long and 2 1/4" tall.
