Chrysanthemum Stone #Css-4-a17
Chrysanthemum Stone is a fantastic new addition to Fossil Shack’s Website. This natural stone comes from Canada. It is a naturally occurring stone that is made from a mixture of gypsum, dolomite and limestone... with inclusions of various other minerals including Celestite, Calcite, Andalusite and Feldspar.
It is most commonly black and white, but can also be brown and white, depending on the minerals present. The way the minerals are arranged in the stones resembles a flower... which explains the meaning of the name Chrysanthemum Stone.
Large Spinosaurus Tooth #LSP-8-a17
Acheulean Handaxe #Ha-6-a16
As with most Lower Paleolithic tools from North Africa, the countless millennia of wind exposure has formed a fantastic desert varnish or gloss and patina across the surface. The workmanship on this axe is remarkable and illustrates the incredible technical know-how used by these ancient tool makers. The preservation is remarkable as well. This hand axe has NO REPAIR AND NO RESTORATION.
