The Rhino is a member of the Big 5 animals referred to as the five most difficult animals to hunt on foot in Africa. It is often illegally hunted for its precious horn. This pair is sculpted in Verdite, which has a unique emerald looking quality with brown and green striations and is known as green gold because it is a semi-precious stone that is unfortunately becoming rare and therefore increasingly more valuable. It is a hard stone and only the more experienced sculptor will dare to sculpt it. On the Mohs hardness scale Verdite rates between 7.0-9.0.
Dimensions: 6cm x 12cm
