PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Kindly note - Stems are included in this batch, but shipped separately. They will have to be attached to the pumpkin once received. 

A lovely hand carved pumpkin from Zimbabwe! A stunning piece with excellent shape done by a skilled artist. This was a community uplift project we started many moons ago. We have in recent month started to revise the project to keep it going with the introduction of these pumpkins. The community also carves dinosaurs! A wide range of locally sourced materials are used which range from Verdite, Butter Jade, Serpentine, and others. Verdite is the term used for a Fuchsite based rock discovered in South Africa. Fuchsite is an ordinary phyllosilicate stone, which belongs to the Mica group that are usually multifaceted hydrous potassium-aluminium silicate stones. It is also a chromium rich type of Muscovite, which provides its rich green shade with a spotless shine from the small crystals. Verdite also consists of a minor Albite, Chlorite and Corundum Group, Quartz, Diaspore, Rutile, Margarite, and Talc minerals. It is related with Serpentine from the eastern part of Zimbabwe and South Africa. Price is grade dependant. Item is as shown.
