An eye catching Belemnite fossil paper weight made from marble fossil - this item has proved to be very popular as a special gift.
Belemnites are the internal shells of an extinct type of Cephalopod mollusc related to modern octopus and squid. They would have used jet propulsion to chase their prey and to avoid being eaten themselves by larger predatory animals such as Ichthyosaurs. Belemnites fossils date back 240 million years. We hand pick these Belemnites from a 3rd generation family owned quarry in North Africa. Each piece is hand carved and hand polished.
The image is indicative of the style only. Being a natural product no two items will be exactly the same - the actual fossils and colouring will vary. Approximate size is 12cm
