This unique carving features a BC Canadian jade carved bear on an agate slice. This piece is truly one of a kind and all are inspired by Lina’s time in the Rockies. May you enjoy your carving, as it is a beautiful artist piece, and a lasting memory of your time in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

Our Master carver, Lina, comes from a family of carvers. Her grandfather was a Burmese Jade carver in the early 1900’s. Lina has been carving since she was a young child, starting with wood and soon migrating to beautiful stones such as Canadian Jade, Alberta Petrified Wood, Amethyst, Rose Quartz, and other crystals and stones. Lina designs and carves all our signature pieces.

Lina currently lives in the Greater Vancouver Area, where her studio is located. While she carves our larger (signed) pieces, her apprentices carve each of our smaller, or unsigned, carvings. Lina trains her apprentices in her personal, unique style of carving, which utilizes as much of the natural stone as possible to create a truly unique bear. This is a direct contradiction to standard stone carving methods, which utilizes an “assembly line” method of carving, where each bear will turn out exactly the same as the one before. Because of Lina’s method, each apprentice is tasked with creating something unique with as little stone waste as possible, which teaches them to problem solve and really utilize and cultivate their own creative methods. 

Whenever possible, Lina sources Canadian stones for her carvings, including Jade sourced from across British Columbia, and Alberta Petrified Wood, two of her favourite materials. Star Marble, Rhodonite, Hematite, and Sodalite are also used when available. She believes that if a carving reminds you of a place, the stone should be from there as well.

Canadian jade rates with the world’s best. Canadian jade is a type of nephrite jade that ranges in color from light green to dark green, and sometimes even black. The Canadian jade mines are the largest jade producing mines in the world.  As many Canadian mines are slowly being depleted, the price of jade keeps going up as it becomes scarcer. 

Jade symbolizes tranquility and is believed to bring luck, harmony, peace, and guidance in decision making. It also filters energy to remove distractions and reduce the feeling of being overwhelmed. Jade is also helpful for prophetic dreams, relaxation and insomnia.

Rhodonite is a pink stone that ranges from a light to dark pink. It will often be veined with black, white, grey or yellow minerals that run through the stone. It is believed that millions of years ago rhodonite was a solid pink colored stone. Earthquakes and erosion caused cracks in the stone. These cracks then re-healed through time with other minerals and colors in the original pink stone. These are natural in the stone and give rhodonite it's unique look and character.

The main Canadian sources of rhodonite include the Yukon Territory, Hill 60 near Duncan, B.C., and near Penticton, British Columbia. The Canadian rhodonite has been called the best in the world because of its deep pink color.

Agate formed millions of years ago during volcanic eruptions. The volcanic lava flows left cavities filled with gas. As the flows cooled, the cavities allowed mineral bearing solutions to enter and the combinations of theses solutions along with heat, pressure and millions of years allowed the agate to form. Agates are found as geodes first; the stone must then be cut or sliced to see the beautiful colors and patterns inside. Agate is said to strengthen the body and mind and gives a sense of courage.
