Premium #8 Mine Turquoise from Nevada has been wonderfully carved to depict a tiger's eyed Beaver with adorable mother-of-pearl incisors. We're honored to share Keli'i Eli's thoughts regarding his fabulous 3" long, 1" wide and 2 1/2" tall piece:

"Beavers (Biha) live life purposefully and always inquisitive spirit. We can learn a great deal from them as they are excellent in building their underwater lodges, repairing dams, or taking care of their young. They are gentle beings who show us that working hard needs no recognition, just the fact that certain tasks have to be done, they have that aptitude to do the job right the first time - adequately and sparingly. Conservative in their habitat, Beavers are also aquatic. Beavers keep their young close to home for the first few years developing a closeness like no other, family is where the heart is..! Biha (Beaver) is ready for a new home... I tried capturing beaver as if he’s floating on a log down stream as water (turquoise) beads off both beaver and log."
