The stone is found in lands of Haiti. It is soaked in water to make it easier to handle. It then is hammered, chiseled and filed to get the right lines. This process could take hours depending on the piece they are creating. They then sand and buff to get the soft luster on the pieces.
Handmade in Haiti and fair trade imported.
