Ricky laahty carved this adorable Badger
from Royston turquoise, (mined just outside Tonopha, Nevada). We love the way Ricky used a natural dark line inclusion creating the badger's stripe and a nugget of green turquoise for the sensitive nose. Another vein of turquoise creates a natural heartline. This little guy is 1 1/4" long, 1/2" tall, and 3/4" wide. The eyes are warm pen shell inlaid in pools of mother of pearl.
