Paula says -

"This rather unassuming bear blends into the forest and is likely to go unnoticed - that is, until the light catches it just right. Then the mysterious hidden moon glow will captivate you!

"It' getting harder and harder to find fetish carvings of moonstone so don't miss this chance to have a rare bear."
