Carved Gemstone Pendant / Jasper & Quartz / Sachem
Ships from Massachusetts!
This pretty little gem was hand-carved by yours-truly using a Dremmel tool, and then given a fine polish. The Gem is Jasper and Quartz.
Sachem and Sagamore refer to paramount chiefs among the Algonquians or other Native American tribes of the northeast. The two words are anglicizations of cognate terms from different Eastern Algonquian languages. The Sagamore was a lesser chief than the Sachem. Both of these chiefs are chosen by their people.
