Animal: Bison, Material: Malachite
This offering is sold.
Malachite has been a treasured mineral since time immemorial. The Zunis have traditionally carved with malachite, a mineralogical cousin of turquoise. A richly verdant hued stone, it is said to inspire good dreams and sleep, helping folks to open their hearts. Healing properties are attributed with malachite by absorbing a variety of pollutants. Lynn Quam's smoothly sculpted Bison shows off the natural bands of green color known to malachite. Eyes and horns are from lively turquoise. About 3 1/2" long, 1" wide and 2 1/4" tall.
