Stromatolite (Cotham Marble)

Stromatolites are colonies of fossilized algae in (stromatolitic) limestone. Often referred to as "Landscape Marble" or "Cotham Marble",  these specimens originate from the uppermost Triassic of southwest England and are about 220 million years old.

These stromatolites, cut and polished in my workshop in Bristol , England, are highly sought after for jewellery-making because of the miniature landscapes seen within the pattern of the stone.  I have exquisite pieces of Cotham Marble currently available.
