maturin


...
see the turtle of enormous girth!
on his back he holds the earth
his thought is slow, but always kind
he holds us all within his mind
...

i saw this little stone turtle at the new age shop and had to buy him because he reminded me of maturin. this little guy is made out of angelite.

Cute little fella. New mascot FTW~!
Oh and, good looking shading & reflective lighting on the shell. :)
(Had no idea there was a stone called Angelite)

that's prolly cuz the real name of the crystal is anhydrite ( http://www.galleries.com/minerals/sulfates/anhydrit/anhydrit.htm ) and only new agers really call it angelite. and then, only when it's this light blue color. it's pretty neat.
