The turtle has many legends and as a symbol of long life, endurance and the power to survive, this small turtle carving is full of meaning.

Made from Jet

1" x 1"

Jet Stone is an organic rock that is created when pieces of woody material are buried, compacted, and then go through organic degradation. Though very similar to coal, it is less friable. Jet can be cut, carved, and polished to a bright luster. Humans have used jet for thousands of years producing carvings and beads. It's a perfect fit for details as seen in our turtle carving.
