This is a carved Opalite LUCKY ELEPHANT totem! Considered lucky because the trunk is lifted up. Very cool! This is a man-made material, and one of my most requested stones. The stone itself has a unique coloring! The colors shift and change as you turn the piece in your hands. It is transparent, and shades present can include orange, blue, purple, and gold. Opalite almost seems to glow from within - very cool! It picks up different colors depending on the background it is on (light vs. dark) or the kind of light it is in (natural, fluorescent, etc.). Really cute. Check out how it works with subtle energies below!
It weighs about 1oz and measures approx. 1 5/8" inches long X 1 1/4" inches tall. Code-3522
