This fair trade heart is carved from soapstone, otherwise known as kisii stone. It has a word etched on both sides: Serenity, Believe, Courage, Dream, Namaste, Peace, Love, Inspire or Wisdom. Each heart is made from natural, unstained soapstone, and is cream colored with undertones of peach, pink, or blue. Since each carving is handmade from natural materials, the one you receive may vary slightly from the one shown in the image, although it will be very similar. Soapstone is smooth, almost silky to the touch and should be handled with care. This soapstone heart measures about 3" in height and 2.5" wide and 1" thick. Handmade in Kenya.
The price shown is for a single soapstone heart. Purchase at least five and you will automatically receive $1 off each one.
