Gorgeously green banded malachite is a mineralogical cousin of turquoise. It's said to help open one's heart and has healing properties by absorbing a variety of pollutants. Zunis have traditionally carved with malachite. Christopher Sandoval's beautifully shrewd Bobcat (or wildcat) ascertains through lovely turquoise inlaid eyes. Through this bobcat's slightly-hunched and discerning posture, we're taught to think before acting, and that balanced independent thought is necessary in our lives. About 2 1/2" long, 1 3/4" wide and 2" tall.
