Got this as a gift for a teacher. He loved it. The only area needing improvement was shipping time - it took a couple of weeks to arrive and I barely got it in time. Beautiful product, though, and love that it's fair trade!Read More
This lovely pyramid is so gorgeous,Before I got mine, I would just look at it over and over on Overstock and pine for it, but I didn't want to spend money (and not much really) for something that doesn't have a function, except to decorate a space. I wanted to give it to my brother as a housewarming gift because he just moved into our 88 year old mother's house (apartment upstairs) to care for her. So, I bought one for him in October and he LOVES it. (His emphasis in his thank you email) So, I finally broke down in November and bought myself one. It's on my desk right here. I look at it every day. It's one of the prettiest things I've ever owned in my entire life. I'm so glad I finally broke down and got one for myself. Get one for you. Buy one for a loved one. You'll be glad you did!Read More
WOW I was very impressed with this item, it was a little bigger and heavier than I was imagining. The different layers of rock/gemstone are so closely fused together that it almost looks fake, which is the only thing I kind of don't like. But at least it won't be falling apart anytime soon. Truly gorgeous. Impressive that such items are coming from Peru that can help the local folk there. If your gift recipient likes pyramids, this is the baby to get them!Read More
Pleased with my purchase, but the figure is rather small. I realize they give you dimensions, however, I did not expect it to be this small. This is a beautiful figure nonetheless and a great buy for the price I bought it for.Read More
For some reason I thought it would be larger. The layers that appear to be gemstones have no brilliance but a very matte appearance. In the photo they appear to be a little translucent but they are not.Read More
Great purchase... a bit smaller than expected but good piece of art.Read More
I was amazed at how beautiful this pyramid really is, like a precious jewel. It is made well, and the colors look so wonderful together!Read More
This is a very nice accent piece for your table or collection. It is pretty small but people will comment.Read More

Top Gems for Gemstone Therapy
Gemstone therapy promotes the idea that the energy of gemstones affects the human body in different ways, depending on which gemstone is used. According to this therapy, the human body is a form of energy, as are gemstones. Since gemstones are created over long periods of time, deep in the earth, they have very steady energetic vibrations. The human body, on the other hand, remains a new and malleable combination of atoms with unsteady energetic vibrations. Therefore, when a gem's stable vibration is placed against the skin, it can alter the energy of the human body.
