This fabulous carved tablet has been attributed to the Chavin culture, Peru and has been dated to 600BC-300BC. It depicts in shallow relief an anthropomorphic zoomorphic figure squatting upon a double bar. Exotic birds, snakes, saurian beasts and fantastical creatures are depicted in a transformational environment. The entire design is bi-symmetrical. Two pairs of holes have been drilled 1/5th from the top of the tablet. It measures 10.5cm in height, 6.1cm at its widest and 2cm at its greatest depth. The dark green stone is identified as serpentine (antigorite and chrysotile), a magnesium silicate with significant traces of iron. Iron oxide, calcites. manganese, clay, organic debris, chlorides and remineralized mercury sulfide are indicated as deposits. Formations of deposit material are indicated in and over the tool signatures. It has been examined by Orenda forensic laboratory and declared authentic. The report is included which includes microphotography to support the findings. It also comes with a Bill Breckinridge Raman laser spectrograph COA. It has also been examined under an electron microscope. This unique artifact truly screams pre-Columbian. Please view my youtube video at Due to a recent diagnosed major health problem, I have dropped the price of this piece and all my items by at least 50% to at or below the price I paid many years ago. Now is the time to pick up a great deal. My loss is your gain. This piece was $8000.
