Mapiya the Sodalite Buffalo carving
Hand carved Sodalite natural stone. This buffalo carving is sensational. Looking as though paint has been scattered across the stone, rest assured dear readers, it is all natural. This lovely buffalo will make a great addition or start to your collection.
Sodalite is a rich royal blue mineral widely collected and enjoyed as an ornamental gemstone. Massive sodalite pieces are opaque however, crystals are usually transparent to translucent, and it's related to Lapis Lazuli. Discovered in 1811 in Greenland. What a special way to recall the beauty of the Black Hills, Custer State Park and the Buffalo.
