Green serpentine seal. Unsigned. Early label, 1960s or 70s?

An Inuit group discussing the different types of stone used for the carvings said the green serpentine soapstone was used for some of the earliest carvings because it was softer. However, that comes with the caveat that this stone is still being used, and stone type is often regional and depends on what is available locally.

I love the seal! I have a real soft spot for animal and bird carvings.

I’d been watching this listing on eBay for awhile but the seller was in Germany so I wasn’t confident about the packaging, but the seller said they’d pack it well and it arrived safely
