NO PEYOTE WAS
THE MAKING OF THESE ITEMS!
You might be asking "How was that
possible? They look so realistic!"
Each mold was carefully cast in
natural setting in which the peyote was found, and the living peyote
plant was left there undamaged to continue its existence. The
appearance of these is therefore unique in that they are from living
plants growing in their natural habitat. The form such plants take is
considerably different from that of plants grown "in captivity".
Each gift will come with a letter
amount of the gift that is tax deductible,
in accord with the IRS
Your contribution will entirely be

No contribution will be used for compensation of
any CCI staff member who will all continue to freely volunteer their
and expertise. Including the making of this jewelry.
Belts are not included with the belt

Star cactus (Astrophytum asterias ) jewelry may
become available if the correct opportunity arises. Since wild grown
plants make the most accurate images and only a handful of acres in the
world exist where they can be found, CCI will only offer such castings
if the appropriate and acceptable opportunity arises that permits
molding without risking any harm to the living plant.
Donors outside the USA, please contact the CCI
