Bear Arizona Pietersite or Tiger's Eye Stone Carving
This hand crafted Arizona Pietersite bear carving is 5 inches long, 3.5 inches high, and more than 1 inch thick.
Called Tigereye or Pietersite for its cat's eye like chatoyancy caused by Chrysotile fibers. This is not the same as the Pietersite found in China or the type found in Russia, but this material is known as Arizona Pietersite. This lovely piece is green Serpentine and slightly translucent! The gold bands shimmer and glow in the light!
This is modeled after the Zuni Fetish Bear - among Native American people the bear is regarded as a symbol of strength. Often small carved bears, called fetishes, are carried by Native Americans for protection. This is not actually carved by a Zuni artist.
