Paula says -
"This black marble mole has a simple turquoise heartline and is very smooth to the touch - perfect for carrying in a pocket or pouch and for rubbing to release the Spirit of the Underground."
Dime above shows scale of carving.
If you get down to the mole's level you can see the inlaid turquoise eyes.
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. Read more about fetishes.
Mole - Guardian of the lower regions of the Six Directions. Mole is connected closely to Earth's hidden powers and has great knowledge of minerals, roots, herbs, seeds, springs and rivers.
Heart Line. The heart line is a line etched, painted or inlaid on the animal. It usually extends from the mouth to the region of the heart. There are many interpretations as to what a heart line represents, but it is often said to represent the pathway of the breath of the animal to the life force which is the heart. Others feel that the heart line points to the soul of the animal. It is thought that a heart line gives the fetish healing or medicinal power.
