Master carver Brian Yatsattie's stunning Honduran opal Medicine-bear twinkles with pinpoint grains of gorgeous green, blue and orange opal matrix, almost galactic in nature. These esteemed ancient opals formed with black volcanic basalt in Central America. Measuring approximately 2 1/4" long, 5/8" wide and 1 3/4" tall, this heavenly Bear's beautifully rounded back is reminiscent of its den or cave entrance where it goes to rest in torpor. Jet inlaid eyes and an excellent sense of smell lead this creature home.
