Carved with playful movement, Keli'i Eli's fabulous No. 8 Mine turquoise otter pair is about 4 1/4" tall, 2" deep and 2 7/8" long. This specimen of No. 8 Mine turquoise is really incredible, as it hosts interesting variations and a lot of pretty matrix. Each otter has beady eyes of jet, incised whiskers and long tails. Otters are highly intelligent, able to make and use their own tools.
