This is a keeper (kinda like most of the stuff I make, lol!!!), I get so attached to my crafts. Cheesy

African bloodstone, lapis, snowflake obsidian, and some pink/grey stone I can't remember, lol, the elephant is carved from a similar stone, yep, I don't know what it is either, lol. Roll Eyes


Please let me know what you all think. Cheesy

That is so unusual. A novel colour choice that works really well and I love the elephant too.

Very cute elephant. I think the pink/gray stone looks like dyed howlite. It's usually white with gray veining, but is dyed many different colors including blue to mimic turquoise.

Very Nice! Your Elephant (and probably side stones too) are made of a stone called Rhodonite.
