"Truly Lovely"

First off, its bigger than I thought itd be which is great. Nice polish, good color and inclusions. Is darker and more opaque than the smaller version of this, which I was not expecting but am pleased.

Many of their designs include jade, which was highly valued by ancient civilizations in the area and used as ornaments, tools, and burial artifacts. Their artwork is often a reflection of Guatemalan culture and they used techniques passed down over generations.
