When in Tucson in February 2016 I hand selected a small assortment of agatized fossils that came from The Western Sahara and around Morocco. I got just a few of these fabulous petrified fossil gastropod snails that date from the Cretaceous Era, from 66 to 140 million years ago. They have agatized, turning into hard chalcedony-agate-quartz and are not soft fossils like so many others. This matched pair of focal beads which measure 30x15mm and is 15mm thick with a 2.5mm side drill hole. Completely natural and untreated except for the drill hole. A beautiful and unusual genuine fossil that would look good alone on a chain or strung with other complementary beads.
Chain not included. See the rest of my listings in my DVHdesigns Etsy shop AND my eBay store for more focal beads, custom cut cabochons, cold worked glass, genuine jet mourning beads, sterling chains just for beads, and more!
