Creative visualization and imagination are said to be sparked by magnesite, a lovely mineral with a lot of visual appeal. Bobby Shack's old-style Mountain lion (puma, cougar or panther) has been lovingly hewn from this stone and has bright turquoise inlaid eyes. About 3 1/4" long, 3/4" wide and 1 1/4" tall. Bobby's wife is Corraine and together they produce beautiful jewelry. Their son is multi-media artist Daryl Shack Sr.
