"In our culture, the women are the ones looking after the family, so the women are always the first to notice if there's something wrong."

Edward has signed it on the base.

This wonderful pale green, grey and pink stone is a hard variety of serpentine. It has a dense, even internal structure of small grains of rock. All the colouration in the stone is entirely natural, enhanced by the application of a coat of clear wax.
