Coal, an unexciting derivative of carbon found deep in the earth, has been hand-carved and polished into this pendant with intricate scroll etchings inspired by the traditional art forms of the indigenous Muisca people who lived in the Andes Mountains of Colombia from 1000-1550 AD. Commonly used for fuel, this black sedimentary rock makes a unique piece to add to your jewelry collection or give as a gift to that special someone in your life.
Handmade by young artisans from the Morca Coal Project in Colombia through an effort initiated by the Colombian government to discourage child labor and train young men in new professions.
