Panama is in total lockdown. No tourists, no sales, no food, no medicine. That is what is happening to the Kuna, Wounaan and Embera tribes in Panama. We have worked with them since 1990 and know they are desperate. Traderbrock, Molamagic and Molamadness will match all sales revenue and use it to purchase molas, tagua carvings and baskets for the next 60 days. We have church pastors and others that sell regularly to us via photos and payment through Western Union. The art is shipped through the mail. We have been doing this for years but now it is critical to help the poorest of the poor. Please share this message with your friends.
Panamá está en un encierro total. Sin turistas, sin ventas, sin comida, sin medicinas. Eso es lo que les está pasando a las tribus Kuna, Woumaan y Embera en Panamá. Hemos trabajado con ellos desde 1990 y sabemos que están desesperados. Traderbrock, Molamagic y Molamadness igualarán todos los ingresos de ventas y lo utilizarán para comprar molas, tallas de tagua y cestas durante los próximos 60 días. Tenemos pastores de iglesias y otros que nos venden regularmente a través de fotos y pagos a través de Western Union. El arte se envía por correo. Hemos estado haciendo esto durante años, pero ahora es fundamental ayudar a los más pobres de los pobres. Por favor, comparta este mensaje con sus amigos.
Folks, on a mola & basket buying trip to Panama I met an enchanting elderly couple on Via Espana. They are street vendors and had all kinds of treasures. I did my Christmas shopping with them. But I was thinking of you too so I bought a bunch for Molamagic as well.
Here we have a necklace sporting a familar Jade-like stone. Years ago I bought a necklace like this somewhere in Asia. It came with a real Jade stone. I still have it too.
Is this real Jade? It is cool to the touch, doesn't scratch and shows the expected imperfections when held up to the light. My bet is that some jeweler uses scrape jade to make these small tooth-like stones.
The black stone pieces look like obsidian. Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock. Obsidian is produced when felsic lava extruded from a volcano cools rapidly with minimal crystal growth. (Goggle)
Hey, they pay me by the word.
