Authentic Turquoise Koala Bear Carving - 126gms


I recently was able to hand sort through a small group of gemstone carvings from the 1960's. I was eager to select a few special pieces for my own collection and also purchased a small group for the shop. This piece caught my eye due to its exquisite quality turquoise and also that it was a Koala, which you do not see often in carvings!

Koalas are symbolic of kindness, motherhood, calmness and family.  These animals are also messengers for physical well-being and remind us to relax, enjoy the moment and go with the flow of nature. The Koala often comes to us at times when were are need of rest and rejuvination. These marsupials are known to sleep up to 20 hours a day. When they come to us, it may be a sign that we need to pay more attention to our health and sleep needs. Koala symbolism also invites us to savor our downtime, enjoy our dreams, and revel in relaxation.

Dimensions: This special carving measures 2.6" in length and weighs 126gms.
