The smooth side of each medicine wheel has been buffed and polished with beeswax to a high gloss. The other side has been left naturally rough as if just peeled from the earth.
(The medicine wheel you will receive will be very similar to the ones pictured but each is hand made and each stone is unique.

MEDICINE WHEEL - The Medicine Wheel is an integral part of American Indian Spirituality. It is based on the four cardinal directions and the four sacred colors. The circle represents life and the four colors, like the seasons, are the changes we make on our journey. At the center of the circle is the eternal fire from which everything originates and everything returns.. Read more about Four Colors Medicine Wheel.

 

PIPESTONE, also known as catlinite, is a form of clay called argillite with a high iron content that colors it a deep red to pale orange. Pipestone was discovered in southwestern Minnesota by the Sioux Indians, who consider it a sacred material and use it to carve pipes and other ceremonial objects. It is easy to carve because of its lack of quartz. Read about stones
