"A person who was helping other people when he was rich. When the money runs out, people don't want to know him and he wonders why."

It just goes to show how similar human nature is from one culture to another!

This is a very collectable piece in a beautiful material by the greatest living Zimbabwean sculptor.

Lepidolite is a mineral of the mica group, containing lithium. For the geologists among you, find out more here. This stone came from Bikita, one of two sources in Zimbabwe. Bride by Richard Mteki is made from lepidolite from the other mine, which is a deeper purple.
