A Turtle/Tortoise is esteemed because it carries its home on its back. Always at home no matter where it roams. This beautiful reptile is carved from a brilliant blue turquoise stone and accented with inlaid stones of red coral. The turtle also carries an overlaid piece of spiny oyster inlaid with tiny stones of jet and turquoise. The piece measures about 1 3/4" long, 1 1/2" wide by 5/8" tall with inlaid eyes of jet. The friendly little turtle/tortoise would make an excellent pocket or pouch traveler.
