Story Behind the Art:
Peruvian artisan Cesar Gonzales has worked as a stone carver since 1988. Gonzales works with serpentine, rose manganese, calcite, celestite, red jasper, mottramite, chrysocolla, rhodochrosite and quartz. 'I work in stone because of the beautiful things that can be made with each kind,' he says. 'I like stone's naturalness and purity of color.'

I recieved them both but one is pointed different than the rest of the oblisks that I've purchased from overstock. It has a sharper edge than the other and surprized me that they weren't alike. They are 2 different sizes and fit well with my collection but the one stands out because of the cut into the stone. The smaller one doesn't quite look like the picture because of the cut into the stone. That is why I only gave it 4 stars because the cut isn't quite right.Read More
