    Does this bear seems to be carved out of jade or some other material? The material is cool to the touch. I keep it on the nightstand beside my bed and anytime I pick it up it feels cool.

      I don't know about jade but there are people here that do. I think he's lovely. I like the angled carving.

      Thanks, I didn't know anything about it. I looked up some onyx pieces after I read your post and I think you're right.

      hmm. I always thought my turtle like this was jade. Interesting. Thanks for sharing

      Yup, onyx. Probably from Mexico. My mom used to collect these pieces in the 1970s & 80s.

      I had no idea it was onyx until Loumanal posted the comment. I have a paper weight the same color and now I know their material. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge :).
