What we have here is 7 smaller pieces of different types of high quality carving stone. There are 2 pieces of the Sacred red pipestone or Catlinite from the Pipestone National Monument Quarries! In addition to that, there is 2 pieces of high quality black pipestone, and a couple pieces of rarer different colored pipe material. These you will also find very nice to work with and they'll have beautiful colors in them. I've measured several of the pieces so that you'll have an idea of exactly what you're buying.

The one in the top row, (furthest to the right) measures 2" x 2". This piece is app 1-
The one in the bottom row on the left-hand side measures 5-1/2" long x 3" tall. It is 1-3/8" thick.
The one in the bottom row on the right-hand side measures app 3" x 3" and is 1-1/8" thick.
All of these pieces are top quality stone and will make very attractive pipes or animal effigies.
You will find that these different types of carving stone will be a joy to carve. It will be soft and it will hold some nice detail.
You can use a regular hacksaw to cut this stone or it will also cut great using a bandsaw with a new
wood blade. It is soft enough that it will carve great with a regular pocket knife if you want to do some real delicate and detailed carving.
