Sir Isaac Newton, having discovered gravity on seeing an apple fall, would sensibly use this apple for a paperweight instead. Hand-carved in beautifully grained onyx, this solid little apple has a brass stem. With the aid of gravity, it will keep your papers safely in place. Onyx is a semiprecious translucent stone with color ranging from white to deep greens and browns. Dominion Traders works with underprivileged artisans who make stone and shesham wood crafts in the city of Karachi. It disperses orders to independently owned and operated onyx workshops that own their own equipment and rent or own their facilities. Most are family businesses employing several family members. Benefits to artisans include profit-sharing, pension plans and medical benefits. Dominion Traders provides interest-free loans and advances to artisans. Ten Thousand Villages has purchased products from Dominion Traders since 1983. Onyx, brass - 1.5Dx1.5H inches - Made in Pakistan
