This is a finely hand carved wildlife wolf figurine sculpture, carved from a piece of grey fossil jasper and orange red jasper stone. The whole wolf is carved from grey fossil jasper which has beautiful contour patterns and the craftsman finely carved the fine furs of the wolf, making it look very real and beautiful. The sharp teeth of the wolf is made from real clam shell and tongue of the wolf is carved from red jasper. Everything is natural and beautifully carved, nice to display.
The name Jasper is derived from a Greek word meaning "spotted stone." Jasper is a microcrystalline variety of Quartz, a silicon dioxide mineral with a hardness of 6.5 to 7. Its crystal system is hexagonal. Within Jasper, the quartz microcrystals are laid out in sugar-like grains, rather than the fibrous layers found in its close relative, Chalcedony. Jaspers are found all over the world, including important deposits in India, Russia, Brazil, France, Germany and the USA.
