This is a stone pendant, beautiful 'as is' and hand carved. - EXQUISITE and unique. I do not know if it's been dyed.
However, I use it as a mold in my 'compound mouldings' to create unique pendants. I am selling the original carved work as a possible mold for you to create your own versions of pendants.
I am a teacher in the Polymer Clay Adventure 2015 online 'retreat' that offers how to video instructions (including how to use this mold - 2015 retreat). Check it out at http://bit.ly/1McxUqd .
I have been going to trade shows for 20 years and once in a while I come across the most beautiful work of art which I consider artifacts. This is one of them. All my components are hand picked and affordable.
