Carved unakite elephant with faceted serpentine beads

Details

This is a beautiful little carved unakite elephant, a little less than 1" long and 3/4" from top of trunk to tip of toe.

It is photographed with a quarter for size and also from the back.

The carved gemstone pendant is suspended on a copper bail from a 17" necklace composed of small round unakite beads and freeform unakite nuggets interspersed with faceted light green new jade (or serpentine) rondelles.

The necklace closes with a bright copper sunburst toggle.

The last picture shows the necklace with coordinating earrings also available in this shop.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Unakite is an interesting mix of red/pink feldspar, white/gray quartz, and epidote (a pistachio-colored gemstone). It is considered a balancing stone and is said to help unify the emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of self, making it an excellent stone for those seeking a well-rounded existence. Unakite is also believed to help usto live in the present instead of dwelling on the past.

Very often referred to as new jade, serpentine is not a true jade. It is light to dark green to whitish green in color and looks something like the skin of a snake due to its inclusions and variations in color. The 30th Chapter of the Egyptian Book of the Dead is said to be carved from a tablet of serpentine. The Aztecs prized all green stones and serpentine was known to be valued in their time. Rasputin was said to favor serpentine and requested an entire dinner set be created for him by the Czar and Czarina as a favor for saving the life of their son.

I acknowledge purchases and ship items immediately, usually within 24 hours of payment. I enjoy communicating with customers and appreciate hearing why you chose my shop and the purpose of the purchase. My goal is to have 100% customer satisfaction.
I'm in Canada so items can take a week to ten days to arrive in the United States. Also, postage is high in Canada (small population, huge country), but I charge the absolute minimum for shipping, often less than it costs me.

I have been delighted with purchases I have made from Artfire. I now have a wonderful pen from steampunk creations-my friend will love it! The prehnite gemstone earrings are so beautiful- how delightful to have a site with choices like these at such a reasonable price.

I absolutely LOVE these pieces, especially the bear pendant! Shipping was very fast and the seller was very nice and even emailed to let me know that she sent the piece - I will definitely be a return customer. Thanks Debbie!
