Item details

• ITEM: Primitive-chic fossil Blastoid aka Sea Bud specimens ready for your handiwork. (A Sea Bud is a member of an extinct class Blastoidea of echinoderms, animals related to the modern starfish and sea lilies.)

♥ Mix the modern with the old to come up with a primitive-chic beachy look. These 370 million year old relics would look great devised with pearls, coral or shells.

• PRICE $8.00 ea pair OBO!

• SPECIES: Pentremites tulipaformis / Upper Mississippian Period

• QUANTITY: one pair

• SIZE: roughly 12-14 mm

• SHAPE: natural bud-like

• FINISHING: wild-n-rugged

• DRILLED: 1mm / top to bottom

• COLOR: natural creamy grey

• MATCHING: not an extremely close match-one pair is a bit different from each other


• OVERALL GRADE: All rough & wild cut material comes with inherent imperfections and non-symmetrical shapes, which in effect is part of what adds to their rugged untamed style and as such the material is not necessarily sub-standard. Perfection grading is not performed on any stones classified as “wild”.

• FYI: These are sturdy but could chip. Special occasion use is recommended. Do not bathe or swim while wearing. Don't allow to bang around.

So fabulously fun! I love these sized-up "pod creatures". I've already made them into a pair of unique earrings!

Very cool idea. They were quite different in size though, so I don't think I can make earrings

Such interesting and weird little creatures. Love them and have already made one pair of earrings. Contemplating what to do with the second pair!
