"Everybody, when they go away, thinks about home and misses their families."

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

Verdite is usually an intense green colour, full of intricate swirls. This variety has a mixture of gold, green and brown with hints of purple corundum. Veridte is an immensely hard stone and is very difficult to sculpt by hand.
