It almost looks like stone, but, I dont think so. Amazing craftsmanship and great display.These items are all glued to a felt backing (black). You can display as shown or carefully remove each with a sharp knife or razor blade. Any glue residue can usually be removed with rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover, etc. You can display this frame flat as is or you will need to add a hook on the back to hang on wall (none exists).
