Argillite stone belongs to the Haida nation. The right to prospect it and sell it as an artifact given to them by the Canadian government in exchange for banning the beaver trade.
For two centuries, no other argilite could leave the Queen Charlotte Islands than carved art pieces. Lately, however, more and more chunks and pieces are appearing on the collectors’ market, especially in British Columbia.
That’s how we come by this large piece as well, and used to carve different symbolic and cute pendants.
The designs are unique, only one carved into each piece. Many others are available in our shop.
A limited quantity of raw Argillite stone is still available for custom carvings.
