This is a carved Opalite LIONESS totem. This is a man-made stone, see below the measurements for more info. The stone itself has a unique coloring! The colors shift and change as you turn the piece in your hands. Shades present include orange, blue, purple, and gold. Opalite almost seems to glow from within - very cool! Tiny bubbles and streaks/swirls are visible here and there as well.
There are a few tiny organic spots from inclusions that were close to the surface as the stone was polished. ALL inclusions come from 100% natural formations in the material. Much nicer than the photos can show! Check out how it works with subtle energies below.
It weighs about 2oz and measures about 2 3/16" inches tall X about 1 7/8" inches wide at the widest point. Code-112822-3686
As a totem animal, the Lion or Lioness presents a lesson in dealing with groups, and helps make clear your role in that group. The Lion has often been associated with the sun, and the mineral Gold. The Lion is a totem for avoiding confrontations, and honing stealth. Lion teaches us to take the calm river (or path) in life, rather than fording white water rapids!
