Last year I was on holiday in Sri Lanka. This is a statue of the Hindu deity Ganesha, I can't remember where in Sri Lanka I bought him. I was looking at him today and I hadn't realized the beautiful colour of the stone. The stone itself is predominantly green, but as you can see from the photo's there is array of colours. I was wondering if it is a mixture of different stones. I know there are several types of semi precious stones, in Sri Lanka, moonstones, garnets the list is endless. To me the statue as the look of a stone called Labradorite, which is part of the Moonstone family, I have researched to see if this stone exist in Sri Lanka, from my research it doesn't. I was wondering if anybody on CW would have a idea? You can see he has been beautifully carved and he really is lovely.
Many thanks for looking.
