~ Fossil coral cab ~

Offered here is a large deluxe cabochon of colorful fossilized coral, from Indonesia. This fascinating material is often drab or monotone, so good, solid pieces with strong hues are few and far between. This example has rich coloration, and even without enlarging the pics, one can clearly see the stone's unmistakeable one-of-a-kind pattern of flower-like starbursts. Hence the name 'flowers of the sea', as it is sometimes known. The stone is actually composed of the highly silicated fossil remains of colonial sea coral, many millions of years old! Please click to enlarge the pics to see the intricate details within. This cab has a high rounded dome of 6+mm, a designer 'flame' shape, and a slick glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 58x24mm
Weight: approximately 56 carats
