Chile is famous for its high-quality copper products. These can be painted plates, figurines, decor items, and so on. Another pride of Chile, blue semi-precious mineral Lazurite, is considered a stone of friendship and honesty. Except for Chile, the stone is mined only in Afghanistan, so it's worth to buy at least one ornament containing it or just a rough stone. The price depends mainly on the size of the stone.
It wouldn't be superfluous to mention the best souvenir shops in Chile. This is, for example, "Emporio Ñamku" in Malalcahuello selling souvenirs made of wood, wool ponchos, and beautiful tableware. The richest souvenir shopping spot is Los Dominicos Handicraft Village located near the Andes, where there are about two hundred shops offering all kinds of crafting wonders, herbs, and desserts. In general, unique souvenirs can be found throughout the country. But keep in mind that products sold in Patio Bellavista Shopping Center on Providencia Island are greatly overpriced.
