According to Zuni mythology, the Bear fetish is the Guardian of the West and has the power to heal and transform human passions into true wisdom. Bear reminds us that one of the great powers we have is the power of turning to solitude and introspection through which we integrate new experience and change. Bear represents the healing power within every living thing. Many of us are unprepared to make use of the potential power we possess in our capacity for introspection and solitude. The wisdom of Bear can help you realize this power and use it during those times in your life when the change created by cataclysmic events feels overwhelming.
These are medium bears in a really nice Red Carnelian. Carnelian is found primarily in India, as well as various sites in South America. It is a variety of chalcedony.
