Item Description

This fat hippo is really well carved and polished.    This is a vintage item but has no visible chips or scratches.  Numbers etched into his feet underneath.  The malachite is a very good green.

Malachite is a beautiful decorative stone. Its rich, patterned coloration in shades of green is unique among gems. Malachite’s low hardness makes it easy to work, though it still takes a polish very well. These qualities, combined with ready availability, make malachite a popular choice for lapidary artistry
