This shiny polished black stone bear carved from one solid piece of natural black Wonder stone. Wonder stone is often referred as a type of soapstone, and most of carving stone supplier sells it as black soapstone. However Wonder stone is belong to a specially categorized rock mineral, what made up of Phyllite and Schistose rocks. Wonder stone is closer to categorize to Slate. The name probably refers to the wonderful carving ability, because this stone smooth finely grained and hardly have or no fractures. It’s carved with simple hand tools such as rasps and files, and easily polishes with standard water base sand papers.
This hand carved figurine is brand new, never been displayed. Has a bright polish, sealed and buffed with natural non toxic bee wax. Ones displayed, not need much maintenance, maybe a few drops of olive oil and a soft cloth buff time to time, to keep it fresh and new looking.
It makes a thoughtful of gift idea for retirement, anniversary, or as a moving in gift to decorate the new place. I can add names, or a short personal message by carving or engraving to the belly free of charge.
