Lot 0056
Fossil mineral, China.

It seems almost unbelievable – as one were looking into a colorful toystore – what one can recognize in this mixture of structures, forms and various details. But it is nothing more than naturally produced fossil stone. Small, round bottle with wide shoulders; the background color is brown and the mineral inclusions white to almost red. Stopper of the same material with spoon.

Expertise: Wolfmar Zacken
