Additional Info

Pipestone, aka Catlinite, is a sacred material for Native Americans, especially those from the plains. So named because it has been a stone of preference for creating "peace" pipes, with attendant significance of agreement reached when the pipe is shared. Its beauty and the legends associated with it, make a popular carving material.
