A few weeks ago I secured a strand of gorgeous gorgeous fossilized agates, well, the agates aren’t fossilized, but the creatures that were once alive hundreds of millions of years ago are fossilized in the stone. In real life, these are amazing and the details of the shells and spirals are really captivating.
Rather than add to the stones themselves, I opted to simply insert a silver pin and create a ring at the top, then hook it to a silver bail, keeping focus on the beauty of the stone itself rather than the pieces to hold it together.
These particular ones comes from Wyoming, US, and date back 40,000,000 ~ 60,000,000, true hidden treasure from the earth itself.
And a lovely collection of various fossil/coral/dendrite agate stones on Etsy, that managed to take my breath away!
