Penguin Stone Carving
This cute little penguin is hand carved from a black and a white Agate. The penguin is 2 inches tall by 1.25 inches wide. The base is 2.5 inches by 2.5 inches and the piece is 3 inches tall overall.
Agate is a member of the chalcedony family, or a microcrystalline quartz, and it has a hardness of about 7 on the Moh's scale. The name is derived from its occurrence at the Achates River in southwestern Sicily.
It is sitting on a natural chunk of Quartz with Pink Tourmaline crystals. Tourmaline is a crystal boron silicate mineral and comes in a variety of colors.
The penguin is shipped separated from the base. The base has 2 small holes and the penguin has post on its feet. You will need to mount the post into the holes.
