This fish is swimming happily, enjoying the warmth of the sun through the clear water.

An absolutely delightful small fish from Edmore, well-known for his lovely sculptures of fish. Such a gorgeous piece of stone with fascinating internal colouration.

'Butter jade' is the local Zimbabwean name for this beautiful and extremely hard variety of stone. The internal structure of fine grains appears layered (usually cream and pale green), but when it is sculpted it behaves much more like flint!
