Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 1914)

Pamela, the eyes have me curious too, they could be glass or porcelain.
I will have another look when it gets light. What does imho stand for?

I am going to google labradorit some more now!  cheers Ruth

Leni: I join you and your testing method of materials - it always works! Normally a touch does...
Ruth and all here: Labradorit is too soft (Mohs-Haerte) for being Granit and I bet your fish is 'Feldspat = Labradorit' which can be easily carved like that.

sorry not granite - check the Larvikite technical reference for all variants and names it goes by.

I'm googled out and reckon that labradorite it is. Larkivite has some similar properties but does not quite fit, despite #

Labradorite
# Receptive
# Element: Air/Spirit
# Projection, shapeshifting, celestial energy, astral magick.

Larkivite
# Projective
# Element: Water
# Darkness, rain, shadows...strange deep energy, similar to labradorite but grounding, rather than ascendant.

This is him.
