Rock Island Stone Heart (IS)
Each stone heart has Rock engraved on one side and Island engraved on the other. Carved from Kisii stone in Kenya by fair trade artisans, Kisii is the only region in the world with white soapstone. Each heart is carved in a multi-step process beginning with using Machetes, then a chisel, and finally is rubbed smooth underwater using sand. Because soapstone is porous it absorbs dye well, so each heart is dyed either blue or green, and then the words are etched back into the original color. A rock solid memory from the island.
