Argillite is the sacred stone of Haida Gwaii, and has been carved for centuries by the Haida people. Known as the black gem of Haida Gwaii, it has a very fine grain, that can betransformed into magnificent works of art. The argillite we sell is found only on Haida Gwaii and is hand quarried and backpacked down a mountainside trail, before being hand carved by local artists. Each original piece carries with it a legendary story from the Haida people.
Each argillite carving is completely unique and special. As such, we invite you to contact us directly for information on additional art and custom pieces.
We're located in Haida Gwaii and offer the unique opportunity to buy Haida art and jewellery online from the islands where its made.
