"Shona Princess" original verdite sculpture by renowned South African artist James Tondi 27x12x6. Verdite, also known as the "green stone of Africa" is highly sought after by artists. Only the more experienced sculptor will dare to sculpt from this hard stone. Verdite rates between a 7.0 - 9.0 on the universally used Mohs hardness scale (hardness depends on the amount of Corrundum industrial ruby inclusions in the particular piece of stone). Verdite's color is unique in that it boasts an emerald-looking quality with beautiful brown, blue and green striations. Verdite is fast becoming rare and is difficult to find. Dallas Safari Club thanks Call of Africa Galleries for this 100% donation. Donor information: Call of Africa Galleries, Ross Parker, 954-767-8737,,
