Georgette Quam and Reynold Lunasee's highly pleasing and welcoming Turtle
is carved of dolomite, with turquoise inlaid eyes. Its carapace is incised with a lovely pattern and set with turquoise accents, centering on an apple coral piece. This wonderful reptile is about 2" long, 1 3/8" wide and 5/8" tall. In some mythologies, the first North Americans envisioned the continent as a turtle because it was surrounded by water.
