Pyrite Elephant Carving
This ornate Elephant has been hand carved from natural Pyrite. It does appear to have a more primitive carving pattern than newly carved Elephant sculptures but I am unsure of its age. This piece weighs 11.5 ounces and measures 3.6" long.
Elephants have been revered throughout history. They are the largest land animals and are among the longest living with with a life span of over 60 years. Elephants can teach us pride, gentleness and commitment. Elephants are wholly committed to all creatures with whom they have relationships. They are most strong when protecting others yet are nurturing and gentle in many aspects. They are wise, reliable and patient creatures.
Pyrite is known as a stone of protection which shields from negative energies. It was prized by the Native Indian tribes as a healing stone and was polished into mirrors for meditation and divination.
This piece has been smudged with White Sage to ensure it comes to you free and clear of energy that it may have picked up along the way. I have only this one piece and you will be receiving the exact piece shown in the photos.
