Orthoceras Bruguière - Orthoceratites

Devonian Marble Wine Holder 1.6ft

£164.00 GBP

Devonian marble wine holder 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 wine racks for your interiors. Featuring throughout the marble unique inclusions of calcified fossil shells, including fossil orthocones and ammonoid cephalopoda.

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.

Wine holders vary in colour and fossil inclusions differ slightly - overall quality is consistent.
