Special Gift - Russian Gemstone Set in Handmade Wooden Box from Russia
This is a very special set that would delight any rock collector - or anyone with an interest in Russian culture, rocks, or natural history.
Some of the finest natural gemstones come out of Russia and Siberia - shungite is only one of them! This collector's set features 7 Russian gemstones, each with its own handmade card with information about the stone.
The Russian gemstones you get include one of each of the following:
Black shungite heart (type 2 shungite)
Elite shungite nugget (type 1 shungite)
It even includes a crystal cleansing kit! You will receive one stick of selenite and one stick of palo santo wood, which is a wonderful alternative to sage for smudging. It smelling heavenly!
Making it even sweeter, each kit comes with an authentic set of Russian babushka dolls!
Also known as matryoshka dolls, these three little hand painted wooden dolls nest together - one inside the other. In Russian culture, they represent matriarchal family generations.
The little wooden box to contain everything is as special as the rest - in fact, it's what prompted me to put this set together in the first place.
These boxes are individually made by a Karelian artisan with Russian nature scenes on the lid. One is a bear, the other an owl. They are constructed of birch or pine and cut with a laser before being painted. Each box comes with a wooden four leaf clover wood-burned with the Russian word for "luck."
Everything fits neatly in the box, making a delightful Russian keepsake with a rock theme!
All of the cards are kept together in a special envelope on the inside lid of the box, so they won't get lost.
This would be suitable as a gift for an older child, perhaps age 12 and up.
