Overview

1 pound of tumbled red petrified algae stones

Product Details

These tumbled petrified algae fossil stones came from stromatolites (mounds made by repeated layers of microbes and sediment) dating back to the Precambrian era. After being buried underneath sediment for very long periods of time, the algae permineralized into deep, red colored jasper. The black "cracks" are likely to be hematite and the white or clear "cracks" are likely to be quartz that filled in where the sediment was deposited.

This bulk quantity, 1 pound pack of petrified algae will contain a quantity of at least 50 stones and each piece will measure 1/2 to 1 inch in length.

  • Bulk quantity of 1 pound will include at least 50 individual pieces
  • Each specimen measures approximately 1/2 to 1 inch in length
  • Stones feature a deep red color with black and white minerals lacing throughout, polished smooth
