Z Bear on Fours
Zuni Fetish Carving
Lena Boone
Brazilian Fluorite
Coral Accents

Lena Boone.  Zuni Fetish Carver.  

This is a really cool piece.  The two sides are very different.  Under indirect light one side is yellowish green with lots of inclusions, the other side looks kind of plain.

When you put back light behind, it lights up as a lime green and is translucent. I've never seen a piece quite like it.

I have another, smaller Brazilian Fluorite bear, by Kenny Chavez, made of the same material, so a bit of the rough material must have been available in Zuni for a time.

Lena is part of the extended Teddy Weahkee family, she is Teddy's granddaughter.   I'd characterize this guy as medium large. 

Please check the dimensions-the photos are extreme close-ups 
The photos are often MUCH larger than the actual piece
