Close up of pecten detail
Pecten Shells 2
This is a beautiful display piece for the home or office.
It was discovered in Provence, France, and is from the Mesozoic Era, 12 million years old.
Pectens are still with us today, but these particular creatures have been frozen in time.
They are scallops, and are known as Pecten yessoensis.
Fossils can no longer be collected from this site, so these are from slabs of limestone we purchased many years ago.
Nothing can be seen until preparation begins, and we never know what we will find. Sometimes many shells, and sometimes very few.
This displays a really beautiful group of Pectens.
The piece has wonderful colour and makes a fantastic free standing display.
Fabulous in a bathroom setting.
SIZE: 36" wide x 60" tall x 8" thick
