This priceless dark green figurine has graced my meditation room bookshelf for 6 years without toppling.

Green olivine quartzite w green schist head, 3 parts. I feel very fortunate since your collection is really priceless!
I know that you hate to break up your collection but at least others will be able to share in some of the Ice Age history of Illinois.
