More than a piece of agatized fossil coral this is an amaaaaaazing piece. The coral fossilized and agatized is hollow – a geode- and it shows the incredible beauty of the coral inner areas with a fantastic texture where chalcedony has set. The exterior, a mix of soft in some areas and super textured in others adds tons of character to a bold element that could make an unforgettable piece of jewelry art, set in rustic way with pure copper that has been exposed to acidic soils to create an organically provoked patina, has also been set with ancient sub-saharan excavated beads -it worth it, totally- and as extreme contrast, two polished agate beads. It could be worn one or the other side as the designer wishes anyway I personally prefer the hollow area exposed even when the opposite side is as fantastic in textures and rich that could be the front of the piece.
It measures total, 3 inches x 4 inches and the specimen by itself it measures 3 1/2 inches x 1 1/2 inches
