Polished Moqui Marble
These "marbles" are the result of water percolating through local shale deposits and creating nodules of iron/hematite. These marbles are unique because of their differing shapes and crystal structure, unlike most moqui marbles. Through curiousity and experimentation we found they make superb polished balls, perfect for earrings! Every marble holds a beautifal metallic sheen that contrast with the natural divots in each stone.
Native American tribes across the southwest commonly believed these stones were the result of gods playing marbles at night. They left their "marbles" during the day to bring joy to Earth!
This marble weighs .2 ounces and is round measuring 16 x 14 x 11 mm
