Calcite and Marble Bears

The bear is the quintessential symbol of the vast wilderness that distinguishes the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks.

These calcite and marble bears were cut and shaped by a skilled lapidary in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia, Canada. While sculpting, he used the stone's unique colours to enhance the animal's iconic form. You can find these bears at
