Item details

Unique hard-to-find natural patterned Indonesian fossil agate, found in the same mining as of the sought-after rare snakeskin jasper in Madura, Indonesia. This feather-like patterned agate is called "Blarak Sineret" by Indonesian locals. The name "Blarak Sineret" actually derived from a certain type of Indonesian traditional knife-like weapon: "keris" which patterns on the blade body is similar to the pattern on the stone. The "Blarak Sineret" keris is believed by the traditional Indonesians (particularly Javanese) to bring fortune to its user, primarily to add dignity and also good relationship because the user is loved by people around him/her, either the superiors or subordinates. Therefore, this type of stone is used as talisman by many Madura locals.

The actual species of this natural fossil stone has not been verified. However, considering that this rock is found in the same place as snakeskin jasper, it could also be the fossilized mouth crusher plate of an extinct fish from its area of origin: Madura >> an island in Indonesia which was a sea that rose to the mainland. Just as the notion of snakeskin jasper type of fossil. However the actual species of this fossil stone remain unknown until today.
