Paula says - "These pendants are made of solid sacred pipestone (catlinite) by fifth generation Lakota pipe maker Alan Monroe (read about Alan). The pipestone was quarried from Alan's claim at Pipestone National Monument in Pipestone Minnesota. The stone has been hand cut, shaped, then buffed and polished to a high gloss with beeswax. Each pendant has been hand etched by Alan - each is unique, no two are alike."

About Pipestone

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

The quarries located at Pipestone National Monument are considered sacred to many Native American people. Read more about Sacred Red Pipestone from Minnesota.
