Brian Yatsattie's young raptor is carved of Andamooka opal that comes from South Australia. It is prized and priced for its beauty and variations of color. This young Eagle has piercing eyes of inlaid jet and is about 2 1/8" long and 1 1/2" tall. Similar at first glance to Australian Boulder opal, the smooth stone hold tiny flecks of red and green fire through out the surface rather than concentrated in veins.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this eagle fetish will go to the Zuni Eagle Sanctuary. Please see our resources page for more information on the sanctuary.
