Frog and turtles have appeared in carved jewelry since prehistoric times.

The turtle is considered one of the
major rain-bringing fetishes.

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.

Dolomite is a sedimentary rock comprised primarily of calcium and magnesium. It is a pinkish-yellowish brown in color and has a pearly luster. It has bands and striations which give it depth and interest. Read more about stones.
