Medium and large versions are also available. Each fossilstone tealight holder is unique with a variation in the colour and pattern.
Fossilstone is the popular name given to a brown, fossiliferous agate found in Wyoming. It formed around 50 million years ago in the lakes below the Rocky Mountains. When it rained, sediment ran down the mountain slopes and into streams that carried it into nearby lakes. This sediment contained many fresh water snails that over time silicified and were preserved as fossils within the sedimentary brown rock. Fossilstone can then be carved and polished revealing the beautiful fossils within in exquisite detail.
