This porcelain mouse, by the German company Rosenthal, is quite realistic and beautifully sculpted. It's chipped ear meant that it was spare change rather than $30-$40. The dealer who I bought it from commented that his ears could do with a bit of a nibble as well. Standing in for cheese is a piece of sulphur sent to me by Ms. DiQuinzio. This element, in crystal lore, is used to promote health and energy as well as remove negative thoughts and energy. Its sunny yellow colour coincides with these ideas, contrary to earlier associations with Hell under its former name, Brimstone.
