This fascinating collection of rocks and fossils includes fossilised ammonite, agate, pink amethyst and coral fossil, showcasing the endless capabilities of the natural world.
The largest piece is of a fossilised ammonite. Ammonites were shelled cephalopods, also known as ‘snakestones’ and went extinct around 66 million years ago. Their shell enabled them to float in water. The piece in Mayfair Gallery’s collection is beautifully coloured in shades of brown. The dark brown features wonderfully highlight the coiled structure of the shell.
The agate piece includes red, brown, and white colouration and its pattern extends toward the edges. The central panel, framed by a deep red border consists of numerous intricate cream-coloured shapes. The reverse of the rock is similarly coloured with shades of red predominating.
The pink amethyst geode opens to reveal numerous pink crystals. The shades of pink vary creating a magnificent effect, in particular impressive when displayed in full light. The surrounding area is grey coloured, further highlighting the impactful look of the pink crystals.
The surface of the coral fossil, known as isastrea fossil, is adorned with several round shapes. Isastrea is an extinct genus of corals. It lived during the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. The subtle yet clearly visible shapes encourage one to stop and slowly observe the whole surface of the fossil.
This superb selection is a magnificent addition to the collection of anyone interested in the history of the natural world.
