Devonian fossil marble dish naturally formed from an ancient seabed. The seabed is now the Western Sahara desert of North Africa. We are delighted to offer hand selected fossilised marble dishes for your interiors. Featuring throughout the marble unique inclusions of calcified fossil shells, including fossil orthocones and ammonoid cephalopods.
The marine cephalopods (molluscs) are preserved and distinctively highlighted in the sedimentary limestone, through the process of fossilisation and the absorption of minerals, the shells and animals change in the soft seabed silts and solidify into limestone with the action of pressure and time. The once living marine cephalopod creating wonderful pieces of natural art captured forever. A perfect curiosity for your home, office or studio.
