Solid and polished to perfection, this bowl is as beautiful as it is practical. It is hand turned by gifted artisans from a solid piece of fossil stone - a type of limestone, which displays impressions of marine fossils that were embedded in the earth's crust millions of years ago. Fossil stone is a completely naturally occurring stone quarried from ancient seabeds of the prehistoric Paleo-Tethys and Tethys seas that existed between 65 and 450 million years ago. The stone is characterized by the visible presence of fossilized orthoceras (spears) and ammonites (spirals).
The surface of this large bowl provides a perfect display of the details in this stone. Measures approximately 12" in diameter and 3-3/4" tall. Weighs approximately 4 lbs. 4 oz. Each handcrafted bowl is unique and may vary slightly in size and weight.
