Amazingly Detailed Hand Carved Artifactual Covellite Skull


We were so excited to see the folks from Artifactual again this year in Tucson. Their skulls are amazingly detailed, but are clearly individual and hand-carved--different than the nicely detailed but all-the-same machine carved ones that are out there. It was really hard not to buy all of them.

Covellite is a rare copper sulfide mineral that has a iridescent blackish indigo, raven-like color to it. You can see the color on this one nicely in the last picture before the one with the ruler. People love it because it's a third-eye chakra manifestation stone. I haven't seen many skulls carved out of this (except for the one we got last time that I kept).

It is about 1 1/2" long by 7/8" wide and weighs 35.3g. It comes in its own box.
