Red Pipestone (catlinite) from Pipestone Minnesota. A



4 Pieces totaling approx 14 pounds.

This material is suitable for as many items as you

can imagine. Pipes, fetishes,

pendants, earrings ,clasps, beads, petroglyphs, turtles,

fish and birds to name just a few items often made from this stone.

I have finally decided to reduce my stock.

Kind tired of moving all this around in the limited

workshop space I have. This material is easy to shape

with files and rasps and sandpaper, wet or dry.

Dremel style tools also work well but remember the safety glasses.

When finished, the Red pipestone is VERY RED indeed!

This beautiful red carving stone was used by early plains people to make their sacred pipes and commune with the Great and Holy Spirit.. The stone is Catlinite (Red Pipestone) from the quarries at Pipestone MN. The site is a national monument, dedicated to the red Peoples and the red stone that has been used by them for worship and trade for at least 1,200 years. We encourage everyone to develop a healthy spiritual practice in their life and a honest respect for others actions.

Holy Holy, I say
