Hand-carved by African artisans from a solid piece of natural Soapstone, this square-shaped candle holder is a work of art! The soapstone rock is ideal for carving as it gets its softness from the mineral talc and is commonly believed to have a soothing, balancing effect while creating a positive, calming energy. Place several together to create a truly unique statement. As a natural material, the color of soapstone varies from creamy white, to rosy pink, to earthy gold. Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary slightly. Holds 1 candle. Fair Trade. Use caution: Surface may become warm or hot during use; place on a protected surface. Keep away from children and pets. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
