Opalised Fossilised Mussel Shell 110 Million Year Specimen Beautiful Gem 78.6cts
Opalised Fossilised Mussel Shell 110 Million Year Specimen Beautiful Gem 78.6cts. This beautiful fully opalised fossil was found out at Lightning Ridge, NSW. It is a great example of an opal mussel shell fossil, which make amazing specimens, aged over 110 million years old! It is completely natural and unpolished. This specimen has great detail from the original mussel shell, with the following colours, lilac / purple - blue, lush grassy greens with gold and pink under tones. The outside of the shell is cracked but very much intact, perhaps the cracks happened under pressure or after the death of the mussel, before opal fossilisation had begun, the surface had started to decompose. This piece is a great find and who knows what might be inside. Personally, I love it, just how it is but that is up to you. This is a great find and priced well, perfect piece to add to your collection.
