Amazingly Detailed Hand Carved Artifactual Newlander Chalcosiderite 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.

This one is from the Newlander mine. Chalcosiderite is a rare cousin of turquoise, known for its amazing colors. Much of it is taken for the jewelry world, so it's unusual to find carvings.

It is about 2 1/8" long and weighs 68.4g. It comes in its own box. Price includes shipping insurance and signature required additional cost.
