It weighs 60.9 grams and is about 70.6 x 32 x 32mm, so it would not be too large to wire wrap even though I carved it to be held in one's hand. Perhaps a creative crafts person could find a way to incorporate both.
Agate is a hard durable stone making it excellent for jewelry, fondling or a pocket rock since it is extremely hard to scratch or break. However, those same qualities make it time-consuming and tough to carve even with all diamond tools. Complex sculptural shapes are rare to find in agate pieces of any kind, so you rarely find agate sculpture because of the difficulty and extra time that is required to cut, carve, sand and polish them. Inside curves are very difficult to finish and this piece has several.
This piece would be an excellent meditative aid. Weather you find stones to have metaphysical properties or not this one is just plain magic to touch. Sort of a little hand-held vacation.

The piece comes with a velvet pouch inside a gift box. As with most of our abstract stone hearts, it was carved not only to enhance the natural shape of the stone, but just as important to feel good when handled.
