I have a fatal weakness for fossilised stones. They were prized in the Georgian period and collected to be admired in cabinets or set in jewellery such as this example. The stones are carefully chosen and absolutely beautiful in their individual way. They are mounted in pinchbeck. They are in fact a mixture of corals and fossils and were sourced in Devon around Torquay.
