Our word hearts are crafted for us by artisans in Kisii Kenya. They are hand carved out of one piece of soapstone using a machete and then wet-sanded smooth. The size, shape and smooth finish of the hearts are designed to help you when meditating or when you need a stress reliever. The special properties of soapstone create positive energy and exert a calming influence when held in your hand. Slight variations in size, shape and color makes each heart unique and all the more special. Approximate measurements are 1 ½” x 1 ½” x 1”. Each word heart comes with a story card and pouch.
