The mineral selections for these carvings encompass everything from Kambaba Jasper, a volcanic type of rhylolite from the South Africa Rift on the western side of Madagascar, to Kalahari Jasper from the Kalahari Desert in South Africa and even Fluorite from China and Mexico. No matter what color or mineral, or even healing property you’re looking for, there’s a mineral carving just waiting for you to take home.
