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

Considered the major rain-bringing fetish, the frog is also associated with abundance and fertility.

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.

Picasso Marble (or Picasso stone) is a carbonate rock of diverse natural colors such as gray, brown and black and with seemingly randomly oriented transecting black veinlets. Much of Picasso Marble comes from Utah. Read more about stones.
