Animal: Turtle, Material: Ocean Jasper
This offering is sold.
Marked with rings of color that are reminiscent of fossilized coral or tiny tree rings ocean jasper has nothing to do with the ocean. It is actually a form of orbicular jasper. Dee Edaakie used it to create this strong Turtle that we can easily imagine swimming across thousands of miles of open sea. With smart eyes of inlaid turquoise and nicely incised details on the carapace. About 2 1/4" long, 1 3/4" wide, and 5/8" tall.
