phosphorus. The stone looks similar to Sugilite. The name phosphosiderite has been derived from its base
elements phosphorus and iron. Phosphosiderite is a rare gem and is found mostly in Germany, France, Portugal,
Sweden, Liberia, South Africa, Mozambique, Canada, Brazil, Argentina and Chile. In addition to these countries,
gemstones reddish brown, usually found associated with barbosalite jet black color. These types of colored
stones are found in South Dakota, USA, Bull Moose mine and Custer County.
Ricky has inlaid the bug-eyed frog with his trademark double inlay of Mother-of-pearl and
jet as the pupils. On the bottom of the fetish is a bear head as the heel of the foot inlaid with jet. It is a large
frog weighing in at 1.7 ounces! The carving is signed Ricky Laahty ZUNI on the legs of the amphibian.
Do not let him hop away from you!
