Dennis Resided on O'ahu, Hawai'i, Where He Passed Away in April 2015. He Was Well Known For Once Carving Jade and Ivory For the Original Ming’s of Honolulu During the 1960s-1990s, Where he Honed His Skills During Those Many Years. He Also Provided His Technical Expertise For the Newly and Recently Resumed Ming's of Hawaii. Dennis Used Mammoth, Mastodon, and Other Ivory Materials in His Carvings, as Well as the Very Tough and Dense Olmec Blue and Black Jades From Guatemala. Whether Taking 4-5 hours to Create a Bone or Mammoth Ivory Makau Fish Hook or 8-9 Hours Taken Just to Intricately Drill the Bail Hole For a Large Black Jade Piece, Each Hand-Carved Work-of-Art Was Painstakingly and Patiently Persevered Until Completion. As a Master Carver, Dennis Applied For Patents on His Unique Designs. All of His Creations Were Uniquely Hawaiian by Nature, Some With a Sense of Humor From His “Dead Fish” Design, to Others Being Highly Desired Including All of His Makau Fish Hook Shapes, Poi Pounders and His Patented Palaoa Designs. With Each Hand-Carved Piece, He Created Simply Amazing Works-of-Art. Each and Every Piece Was 100% Unique in its Own Right; Not Mass-Produced. His Works Reflected the Passion and Love He Had as a Well-Renowned Local Hawaiian Master Carver. Aside From Being Humble and a Great Human Being, He Was Also a Teacher Who Provided Background Information on Each and Every Design. His Unyielding Passion For Carving Was Mesmerizing to Viewers, Both Alluring and Surreal. I Hope You Will Enjoy One or More of His Mini-Masterpieces Created With Mana (Divine Power) and the Inherent Traits of His Skills and Training. I Personally Love and Appreciate All the Special Symbolism Associated to the Pieces He Hand-Carved. These Jadeite Carvings Were Beautifully Hand-Carved By Dennis on O'ahu.- About Guatemalan Jadeite: Guatemalan jade is jadeite. The Jadeite is formed by enormous pressures at low temperatures; Guatemala sits over the subduction zone of the Cocos plate, with the North American plate grinding along the Caribbean plate at the Motagua fault. Nephrite does not exist in Mesoamerica or Central America. On the Mohs scale of hardness, most Guatemalan jades reach a hardness of 7.0, with the Olmec Blue and Black jade varieties slightly exceeding just over 7.0. Until recently, serious gem and jewelry collectors and buyers looked to Asia for the purchase of fine jadeite. The southern area of Sierra de la Minas (Mountain Range of the Mines) is known for its rich deposits of jadeite, marble, serpentine, and other minerals. Smaller deposits of jadeite have been rediscovered sporadically in the last 50 years, until recently, when a major source was identified. It was not until the 180 mph winds of hurricane Mitch stormed the region in 1998 that jadeite was again uncovered in substantial quantities throughout the area. Fine jadeite material in natural colors ranging from a bright, intense green to soft lilac, blue, pink, white, yellow, and black is available from Guatemala. Although jadeite occurs in several locales around the world, Guatemala has been the least-known as a producer of this material. Known sources of jadeite world-wide are relatively limited. Jade use in Mesoamerica was largely influenced by the conceptualization of the material as a rare and valued commodity among pre-Columbian Mesoamerican cultures, such as the Olmec, the Maya, and the various groups in the Valley of Mexico. The only source from which the indigenous cultures could obtain jade was located in the Motagua River valley in Guatemala. Jade was largely an elite good that was highly symbolic and used in the performance of ideological rituals. It was often worked or carved in a variety of ways, either as ornamental stones, a medium upon which hieroglyphs were inscribed, or shaped into figurines, symbolic weapons, and other objects. To date, the only documented source of jadeite in Mesoamerica is in the lowland Motagua River valley. Research conducted by Harvard's Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology in the 1970s identified several ancient mines and alluvial sources in the mountainous areas flanking the river valley (up to an elevation of 6,000 feet). Several of the mines are connected by ancient dry-laid stone paths. From the Motagua River valley, jade was traded throughout Mesoamerica, reaching areas as distant as the Valley of Mexico and Costa Rica.- About Guatemalan Olmec Blue Jadeite: Jadeite from the Motagua Valley, Guatemala, was used by the Olmec and Maya peoples, as well as the indigenous peoples of Costa Rica. Typically, the most highly valued colors of jadeite are the most intensely green, translucent varieties, though traditionally white has been considered the most valuable of the jades by the Chinese, known for their carefully crafted jade pieces. Other colors, like "Olmec blue" jade, which is characterized by its deep blue-green, translucent hue with white flecking, are also becoming more highly valued because of its unique beauty and historical use by the Mesoamerican Olmec; however, this variety was only recently rediscovered and is only being minimally exploited by native Guatemalans. It is thus difficult to obtain and as yet too rare and little known. If history does indeed repeat itself, then you may consider stocking up on this one-time "stone of royalty" to the Aztecs. To them, it was worth more than gold. The “Olmec Blue” jade owes its unique color to the presence of iron and titanium, while the more typical green jade’s color is due to the varying presence of sodium, aluminum, iron, and chromium. Translucence can vary as well, with specimens ranging form nearly clear to completely opaque. The aesthetic and religious significance of the various colors remains a source of controversy and speculation. The bright green varieties may have been identified with the young Maize god, but the Olmec fascination with the unique blue jade of Guatemala, and its role in their rituals involving water sources remains a mystery. No heat treatments or other enhancements are used in the Guatemalan jadeite, it is 100% natural and not enhanced in any way. For jade being mined in Guatemala, it comes as no surprise to researching geologists and archaeologists who have long believed that all the native Central American ancient cultures of the Olmec, Toltec, Mixtec, Zapotec, Aztec, and Maya got their jadeite from Guatemala.
