Complicated feelings about climate change and fossil fuel use? This hand carved, lignite coal heart would make a great altar piece and meditation stone! It feels great in the hand with it's light weight and hand polished sides with natural surfaces on the top and bottom. Using rough coal mined in Tennessee I shaped and polished this piece. Measurements are in the title in millimeters. There are no holes in it. There are natural fractures and stable cracks in the surface appearance of this piece. In some spots there may also be just a little bit of flaking from the compressed layers, though it doesn't indicate any real structural weakness in the overall piece. Metaphysically lignite coal is said to help with depression, grief, and issues of financial abundance. If the rough material was of a higher quality and more dense with less fractures this would be considered jet. A great way to exhibit the multiple textures of YOUR love, your grief, or whatever you're feeling. Naturally JET BLACK! A truly unique mourning & meditation stone made out of one of the few actually organic gemstones!
Each and every Americans individual, personal, share of the coal burned in this country each DAY is about 8 pounds. Just the coal. Each day. Every day. Per person. Think about it.
