Frogs are some of the oldest and most commonly carved Zuni fetishes. This little guy, with all of his spots and turquoise eyes, is quite charming.  Frogs are considered a major rain-bringing fetish so very important to the Zuni who live in an arid portion of the southwest. Frogs also represent abundance and fertility.

Argite Stone is similar to Zebra Stone, which is a black and white stone from the vicinity of Prescott, Arizona. It is said to bring out your intuition. It helps you exercise self-control and understand your chosen destiny. It stimulates creativity and success.
