Fossilized Coral Bear

By Farlan & Paulette Quam

Animal: Bear, Material: Petoskey Stone
This offering is sold.

Carved from fossilized coral that was laid down during the Devonian period about 420 to 360 million years ago around Petoskey, Michigan, this turquoise-eyed Bear shows a sweet determination that time can not diminish. We can see the rosette patteren of the coral on one side with one dark fellow standing out against the lighter color. On the other side we see the bedrock limestone with tiny sea creatures forever frozen in time. Strawberry quartz beads thank this wonderful bear for all its gifts and lessons. About 2 3/4" long, 1/2" wide, and 2" tall.
