The Cave: Natural RARE Ancient Fossilized Tampa Bay Coral, 2" x 5 1/2" / Specimen, Collectible, Natural Coral, Fossilized Coral

The perfect combination of artistic expression and prehistoric life. Some of the finest specimens of agatized coral in the world come from the Tampa Bay, Florida coast. The coral that used to live in the bay for thousands of years, died to a change in the water temperatures and over time, the quartz silica covered the coral creating a hard cast. The coral later dissolved away leaving a hollow agatized geode. Agatized coral has been found in many shapes and colors. No advanced fossil collection exhibiting coral should be without one superb piece from Tampa Bay. From the OLIGOCENE to MIOCENE PERIOD: 30 - 20 million years ago.

This beautiful specimen has both honey-amber colors with white silica through it. Very nice piece and will make great jewelry or a great addition to a collection. One of a kind.

These are almost too beautiful to use... almost. They're so smooth and gorgeous and shiny that I keep running my fingers through them, like the treasure they are... but they'll make a gorgeous trim on my "mermaid bag", made with the beautiful aquamarine tilapia leather I bought these with.
