What is a Fetish?

A fetish is a rock carving of an animal that captures the spirit and the essence of the animal, not necessarily its exact detailed conformation. Although carved from many types of rock, fishrock is traditional. Read more about fetishes.

Alabaster. Also call gypsum, alabaster is a fine-grained, calcium-rich white mineral that looks somewhat like white marble. It has historically been quarried in England and Italy but there are fine Alabaster quarries in Colorado as well. Read more about stones.
