If you like a rustic, natural decor, these eggs will fit right in as an accent. About one out of 4 eggs are etched with an elephant motif on one side. I display them in a wooden basket and they are an attractive conversation piece.

These stone eggs are very nicely shaped and smoothed. In the picture, are carvings on at least some of the eggs. There were no carvings on any of the ones I received. In the place I intended to use them, that little omission mattered. I will give them away.

The item is listed as weighing 13 pounds and being 7"wide x 9" high x 5" deep but is the Q&A tab it is described as being 15" high. It is NOT 15" high! It is also darker than the picture appears. Still a good value overall.

Re: Ceramic 'Aztec Sun Stone' Wall Plaque (Mexico) I just returned from Mexico where I purchased a number of Aztec Calendars to bring home in NY as gifts. When comparing this piece with the others I have to say it is nicely put together by the artist and that is why I say it is excellent and would recommend it to anyone. Further, the price is unbelievable. The packaging was outstanding.

the alabaser lights showed remarkable depth in the variations of the stone colors when lit with tealights.

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my mother. I LOVE it!!! The coloring is of course slightly different than the image due to the stone... but I am very satisfied with the product. The sculpture/stone is very heavy.

The quality/craftsmanship is beautiful. It's just what I expected. There is a little nick/dent but I think that is in part because it's polished stone and the actually stone may have been a bit flawed.

This screen is beautiful looks just like the picture. I think it's very overpriced for what you get but for me it was so perfect for the decor of my bedroom I had to snap it up! The stones are lovely suspended by wires intertwining the metalwork. Looks delicate but arrived completely undamaged.

I have been a customer at overstock for years and am almost alway quite happy with my purchases. This was disappointing however. It was very small and the color of the stone had a lot of brown in it. I might have been happy with it if I had spent XX-XX$ on it, but at double that price it was not worth the cost and I returned it.

I CANNOT BELIEVE WHAT I PAID FOR SOME WIRE AND SOME STONES. IT LOOKS NOTHING LIKE THE PICTURE. PERHAPS IF I WERE ARTISTIC AND WORKED VERY HARD, I COULD COME CLOSE, BUT I'M NOT. I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS PRODUCT AND I THINK IT WAS GROSSLY OVERPRICED!

This statue is even more beautiful than the picture. I love the fact that this was handcrafted, not poured into a mold with “Made in China” stamped on the bottom. It means so much more that someone took the time to carve, polish, and thus transform a stone into such a unique piece of art.

I am amazed at how beautifully the different stones were crafted to fit together into one sweet 'Blue Baby Parrot' Sculpture! I love all of these stones and can't even imagine how someone thought to create this lovely piece! The only exception, which may have been caused by myself, when I unwrapped it to see how the colors, etc. came out, before giving it to my brother...was that one of the little wire feet came off of the pyrite perch. (Easily fixed, I believe). So, it is a bit delicate-thus the careful packaging that was made before sending it off...All wrapped up in a nice soft foam nest...If it wasn't for this quality wrapping, it might have been disastrous, and arrived in several pieces. I am so glad to have had a small part in supporting our 'World's Artisans' I appreciate Overstock for making this possible, by making these products available!

I could tell that the candleholders were broken before I even opened the box. Once I opened it, there were pieces of lava stone all over the box, the counter, the floor. I only took the smallest candle holder out and it was cracked and pieces were flaking off all over the place. They're very lightweight and don't look like they are very durable. I immediately began the process of returning the item. It's a shame because the picture looks very pretty, but unfortunately the picture doesn't tell the whole story.

A rosewood wood stand that is 7 inches square and will be useful for multiple uses from vases, to statues both stone i.e. jade, or metal i.e. brass. It is the right size for mounting large mineral specimens. It does well with the use of museum putty to attach the item to the stand and allows removal of the putty without harm to the stand. I reserved a score of 5/5 for stands that include burl, root stands and those stands that are examples of greater level of craftsmanship and wood quality.

This stunning sphere arrived quickly and well packaged, and even more beautiful in person than the photo shows. It is a substantial piece and weighty although not too heavy. Together with the beautiful onyx stand which, holds it securely in place it makes for a very nice statement piece. The colors are pretty true to the photo but the variations in the stone make them individual and unique. A very pleasant surprise to me was the size which is larger than I anticipated by the photo. I liked them so much that I ordered two!

This will make a nice addition to my garden but unfortunately it's much darker than the image and it's hard to see the details unless you get really close to it.
