This material is now becoming fairly scarse and is well known throughout the world as it is a classic fossil. This thin slice has been ground gem smooth and a high polish applied. The colouration of this algae is due to Boron (Pink).
Found as a tree trunk, the specimen has been cut or sliced into sections to reveal the wonderful internal structure (tree rings) of this Eocene tree. The specimen has been professionally ground and a high polish has been applied. Would look wonderful in any interior and a good conversational piece for any plant collector or indeed the modern gardener.
A beautifully shaped half nodule contains a complete Androgynoceras which has been ground flat and gem smooth then a high polish applied to reveal transluscent green colours. The fossil is approximately 190 million years old and would make a lovely, unique gift idea.
Another classic and wonderful piece of original Marston Marble which has been ground gem smooth all over and finally a professional high polish applied. Each cross-section of ammonites is filled with honey coloured calcite which makes these specimens aesthetically beautiful. Billions of these small ammonites were killed off in one single event, either by volcanic activity or more likely a poisonous algal bloom. A superb piece which would fit into any collection.
