      It looks like a big opal in center which says this was no a cheap piece . Hard to tell much for me photo to small. Very cool piece I love it .
    2. mssue64, 8 years ago
      Yes it is an opal,the entire piece is made out of mineral stones,can't tell what all pieces are,but it is carved very well,a beautiful piece just don't have any information on maker or which tribe

      it looks mexican - retro-aztec. ??
    4. Manikin Manikin, 8 years ago
      I don't think it is native American either ,Mexico is possible :-)
    5. mssue64, 8 years ago
      Thanks,any idea of what's it's called
    6. ATTWOOD ATTWOOD, 8 years ago
      A truly beautiful piece.Try researching bird headressess and meaning you may find the answer.
      Not sure on gemstones and actual carved stone
      Cheers Rose

      I am thinking the black stone is obsidion which is a volcanic stone.I have a Couple of carvings made from it
    8. Manikin Manikin, 8 years ago
      I believe that was clue ATTWOD
      It is obsidion and Here is one less decorated than yours but made in same way

      Wow! you guys are awesome!!!! thanks so very much,Manikin,Attwood,and Ho2cultcha!!!!
    10. martha149, 3 years ago
      I believe it may be Mexican as they do carve obsidian, should it be that. But, they also do a very rich black pottery in southern Mexico that would have a similar look and feel. Without a closeup exam, that would be my rationale.

      Thanks so much!!

      haha I was going to say it looked Astec/Mexican style and just saw Mani's comment. Glad to know for myself I was on the right track!
