This is a well-carved sodalite stone of the African Cape Buffalo. This is a quite unusual subject matter. The African Cape Buffalo is one of the "Big Five" most dangerous animals in Africa. It is another one of a collection of semiprecious and precious stone carvings we recently purchased from a retired professor of gemology. It was his personal collection and each one is the best of the best. Whether you collect miniatures in general or animals in particular, you will treasure this little fellow. Some interesting beliefs about Sodalite are that it "gives us a renewed sense of confidence and self-esteem and that it gives you super powers that keep you shielded from negative forces in our imperfect world. " Thanks to the very interesting Energy Muse.
