Native American Zuni fetish carvings

JUST IN…

Native American Zuni fetish carvings. Carved by the Zuni people of Pueblo, New Mexico originally for ceremonial purposes. Zuni fetish carvings can also be seen as a form of native American contemporary art. They are small carvings made of various materials including semi precious stones. Our shops generally keep small collections of these highly collectible pieces – we buy in small collection once or twice a year

Carvers including Todd Lowsayatee (antler double eagle pictured), Jesus Armando Espino (pipestone eagle pictured). Fabian Pino (marble buffalo pictured), Herb Halate (raven and mountain lion pictured), Benny Bacy (picasso marble bear pictured) plus many more, a few carvings from the collection pictured below….

Munich 2013

MUNICH SHOW

We are not long back from the Munich mineral show and our pallet of goodies has already landed in our warehouse…

Heres a brief look at some of what we bought…

Natural Diamond Crystals from Kenya, first time we have had raw diamonds in about 15 years!

Diamond crystals



Malachite
animals, tumble, lozenges, thumb stones, eggs, spheres pyramids. The malachite animals represent  a lot of work to select from 100’s of strangely carved creatures and a long and difficult journey from the carvers to Europe.

Also

Fossil bowls, Baryte from Morroco

Pyrite eggs and spheres, plus chrysocolla and chalcopyrite hearts from Peru and a very large collection of soapstone and serpentine animals carved in Peru.

Moldavite
All from a collection made 10 – 15 years ago, every piece a winner but also a few good fabulously large specimens we seldom see these days plus a small selection of cut stones for claw setting in India.
