Chris' Fossil Stone and Picture Jasper Necklace and Earrings

By on Friday, October 19, 2007 0 Comments

Nova Scotia's Joggins Fossil Cliffs on the Bay of Fundy is a significant palaeontological site where the high tides constantly erode the rock, revealing new specimens. Trying to find the fossils though is not easy.

But Chris didn't have to tramp any beach to find her fossil stone pendant - she just dug into my gemstone boxes and there it was! Fossil stone is a type of limestone from the carboniferous period bearing the impressions of marine fossils abundant in what was then a warm sea. Each fossil stone is uniquely patterned - there isn't another like it.

Chris chose black beads as her contrast because she loves that colour but she added small picture jasper round beads to match the fossil stone. Her resulting design is a timeless beauty.
