When in Tucson in February 2016 I hand selected a small assortment of agatized fossils that came from The Western Sahara and around Morocco. I got just a few of these fabulous petrified fossil gastropod snails that date from the Cretaceous Era, from 66 to 140 million years ago. They have agatized, turning into hard chalcedony-agate-quartz and are not soft fossils like so many others. This matched pair of focal beads which measure 30x15mm and is 15mm thick with a 2.5mm side drill hole. Completely natural and untreated except for the drill hole. A beautiful and unusual genuine fossil that would look good alone on a chain or strung with other complementary beads.
Chain not included. See the rest of my listings in my DVHdesigns Etsy shop AND my eBay store for more focal beads, custom cut cabochons, cold worked glass, genuine jet mourning beads, sterling chains just for beads, and more! Also, feel free check out my DVHdesigns website where you can see what I'm up to in the studio, as well as learn more about me, my work, and my upcoming show-lecture schedule.

As a general rule domestic shipping is by USPS 1st Class Mail, and I charge $3 to ship in a small jewelry box inside a padded bubble envelope. For fragile, really expensive, or multiple items that still come in under a pound in a small flat rate priority box to keep the shipping price at $6 for most items within the United States. Larger and heavier items, unless otherwise specified, will ship in the larger flat rate Priority boxes for $15. PLEASE NOTE: We try to ship every business day, so your purchase should be handled within 24 hours of receipt of your order. I also am happy to ship international. For MOST INTERNATIONAL ORDERS I can generally ship multiple pieces by USPS Air Mail for a flat rate of $10.00.
My preferred method of payment is PayPal. Just click on the easy to use PayPal link on the ad for the item you purchase or win. If you are buying more than one item or are bidding on auctions, I'm happy to combine purchases for one flat shipping cost. Just e-mail me and ask for a combined invoice. I will also accept money orders or cashiers checks for payment. Contact me for terms.
