When in Tucson in February 2016, I hand selected a small assortment of agatized fossils from The Western Sahara and around Morocco. I got just a few of these fabulous petrified fossil pine cones that date from the Eocene Era, about 50 million years ago. They have agatized, turning into hard chalcedony-agate-quartz and are not soft fossils like so many others.
This tongue bead measures 26x16mm and is 11mm thick (no drilled hole). Completely natural and untreated, the top is polished. A beautiful and unusual genuine fossil that would look good alone on a chain or strung with other complimentary beads.
Chain not included. See the rest of my listings in my DVHdesigns Etsy shop for more focal beads, custom cut cabochons, cold worked glass, genuine jet mourning beads, sterling chains just for beads, and more!
