Fossilized Crinoid Bracelet
Description – Here’s a bracelet designed entirely with 350 million year old fossils. Fossilized Crinoid corals in shades of brown, cream and gray create fascinating patterns in every bead.
History -Crinoid fossils are marine animals in the same class as sea urchins and starfish, that first appeared in the oceans of the Cambrian period, 300 million years before dinosaurs existed. They continued through the Palaeozoic and Mesozoic eras and some groups survive even today. The fossils in our beads are estimated to be 350 million years old and were formed over thousands of years as minerals replaced the cellular structure of the crinoids. The colors and patterns of rare fossilized crinoid beads range from shades of cream to chocolate. Each bracelet is unique, due to the one-of-a-kind pattern and color of each bead.
