Devonian marble Pen Tray or desk tidy, the marble naturally formed over aeons from the ancient seabed now known as the Western Sahara desert, North Africa.
We are pleased to offer a selection of hand-selected fossilised marble desk tidies for your interiors. Featuring unique inclusions of calcified fossil shells, including fossil ammonoids and nautiloids. The marine cephalopods (molluscs) are preserved and distinctively highlighted in the sedimentary limestone, through the process of fossilisation and the absorption of minerals, the phragmacones (shells) of the marine animals change in the once soft seabed silts and solidify into limestone with the action of pressure and time. The once living marine creature creating wonderful pieces of natural history which are encapsulated forever. A perfect curiosity for your home, office or studio.
*N.B. For this product, only the generic stock pictures above represent the similar type of desk tidy you will receive. The same toned or colour marble, however, the fossil inclusions may differ slightly.
