Additional Info

Pipestone is a very revered medium among American Indians, especially those of the Plains. It was the material from which peace pipes were carved, hence the name pipestone. Agreements reached when a peace pipe was smoked by the participants were considered matters of honor.

Pipestone, also known as Catlinite, is also a very responsive carving medium, highly favored by Zuni fetish carvers.
