Calico, CA Silver Lace Onyx Sheep by Chris Sandoval

$ 144.00

A striking white, cream, brown, black and dark umber veined Calico, CA quarried sliver lace onyx sheep carved by Chris Sandoval looking backwards with turquoise inlaid eyes. There is a small base carved from the same stone allowing more stability for the legs carved as two simplified forms. A simple offering bundle wraps around the girth featuring five turquoise beads. Silver lace onyx is a unique and rare stone - it is only found in the Calico Mountains outside of Yermo, California. Silver lace onyx is a type of onyx (chalcedony) that can contain minute amounts of silver. There are honey-colored inclusions known as honey onyx - we think you can see it on the sheep's neck. This stone is traditionally used by wise women or shamans. It is said to enable safe passage into other worlds and provides strong protection while doing so. Sheep symbolize gentleness, innocence, and purity. In addition, the lamb symbolizes sweetness, forgiveness and meekness.
