Item details

You will receive 8 primitive fossilized bone sticks from marine animals of the Miocene epoch (about 23 - 5 million years old). Worn. Great range of colors varying between tan, brown, light gray, green gray, blue grey, and black. Beautiful textures.

Found on the beaches of the Chesapeake Bay in Southern Maryland.

Would make wonderful wind chimes, mobile pieces, jewelry, wearable art, clasps, or toggles. perfect for your assemblages, fiber arts, mosaics, sculptures, or mixed media projects.

Please craft gently. Note: these can be very carefully drilled, but better use a wire wrapping technique if you're new to the drill. Let me know if you're going to attempt drilling them and I'll add in a few broken pieces for you to test.

Sizes range from 2.5" to 3.25" in length. My photos are not to scale, see penny in last photo for size comparison. You will receive exact items in photos.



No, sorry. Unfortunately, I am horrible with a Dremel tool. The last time I attempted to drill a hole, the piece (and drill bit) ended up across the room.
