Cape Dorset serpentine ranges in color from light yellow-green to black. Although a hard stone, in skilled hands the serpentine offers the opportunity to achieve flowing forms, lines bold and delicate, as well as a glistening, elegant finish. Sites for finding the stone are many miles east of Dorset.

We also have a wonderful selection of historical First Nations works, see:
