Hand carved and polished black obsidian cat is approx. 2-3/4" high x 3-3/4" long x 2" wide. Weighs 11.6 oz.Made by artisans in Peru.Very nice piece for the collector. Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass and is hard and brittle. If fractured it has very sharp edges, which have been used in the past for cutting and piercing tools.
