If you love vintage expertly hand carved Verdite, then this adorable Shona Stone " Zulu Princess " Bust is for you.

This is a Magnificent African / Tribal Large Bust.

This is not the modern Verdite this is the real deal, vintage Verdite with great carving, amazing detail that you only get from the Zimbabwe.

When it comes to Shona stone sculpture, verdite is top of the line and green verdite as in this case is most valued because of its quality, rarity and intrinsic value.

It continues to gain value as it is fast becoming obsolete.

Only very skilled artisans can put this much detail on verdite because it is one of the hardest stones used in Shona stone carving.

It is loaded with colorful abundant inclusions of fuchsite, a chromium-rich variety of muscovite mica swirling throughout.

This perfect size Zulu Princess Bust weighs 2 pounds 13 ounces, and it was beautifully hand carved a long time ago.

It is carved to perfection great for a shelf or an altar display.

The " Zulu Princess " Bust measures, 2 1/2 inches long, 3 inches wide, and 7 inches tall, making this a great display item.

Hailing from the North Kaap River, these South African gemstones are prized in many local cultures for medicinal and decorative use.

This is a one-of-a-kind carved malachite lion.

The Malachite is the old style deep and rich in color very dense and so perfectly detailed with great patina.

" Verdite " is a name used for grayish green to bright green metamorphic rocks that derive their color from abundant inclusions of fuchsite, a chromium-rich variety of muscovite mica.

It often exhibits a foliated texture.

The name verdite is from the Latin word viridis, which means "green".

Verdite is found at numerous locations in South Africa, the Kingdom of eSwatini (formerly Swaziland), and Zimbabwe.

I cannot say enough about how nicely detailed this vintage carving is.

My husband and I are Verdite addicts.

We have collected so many gorgeous Verdite pieces, many more to be listed soon.

What makes this Shona Stone Warrior Bust so special is age, patina, and its vintage deco free form style.
