This beautiful red figurine, hand-polished by the ancient artisan, was first thought to be meteorite (no sample pieces have been removed from the stones), but it is actually a rare form of hematite. Here, this Indian thunderbird has just laid more terror in the skies – and has turned her head to see her egg. Red minerals fill the iron matrix of these stones giving them the appearance of tiny scales or feathers. The smoky metaquartzite egg found near the bird has minute hinge fractures giving it the speckled-egg appearance. Apparently, the egg was glacier-ground and hand-polished by the Native American Indian River Owl as well. Red hematite w blue-black specks (not a tool kit) w smoky metaquartzite egg, 3 parts. 3.5”h; 217 gm total.
