Very nicely crafted!”

Ive purchased 3 of these - 1 for myself and the other 2 as gifts, primarily because I love chrysocolla. Typical of chrysocolla, each one has varied in color, all of which are very pretty. and nicely crafted.

Natural Beauty”

Its better than cute. Beautifully colored natural stone carved into a natural shape yields a decorative item of natural beauty. And since it came with its own base, I didnt have to look for another egg cup,.It went on display right away!

Profound Impact

Profound Impact

Novica sales account for most of Cesar's income. It enables him to provide for his family, educate his children, take care of his health and provide full-time employment for other artisans. He is very grateful that his workshop has grown with Novica and for the security it has brought to his life.

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

"I learned to carve stone from a friend. In turn, I have taught my son and many of my workers the art of stone carving. When one of my artisans leaves to start a workshop of their own, I feel great pride. It means that the stone art of Peru will live on. Stone carving records the history of Peru and the Andes. Even though we now use machinery to bring our hand drawings to life... the stories the stones tell and the motifs we incorporate have been with us since pre-Inca times."
