Kenyan artisans hand carve these sweet paperweights from soft Kisii stone, commonly called soapstone. They paint them with a non-toxic pink dye and hand etch the words, "It's a Girl!" Kisii stone is named for the region in Kenya's Western Highlands where it's mined. The stone has a velvety surface that makes it pleasing to hold, and it's a favored medium of African makers.
