PAKISTAN ‘FOSSIL STONE’

  

Small polished decorative bowl

  

(Second-hand item)

  

Baluchistan, Pakistan

  

Pakistan fossil stone is a very beautiful limestone, creamy yellow in colour and containing fossils. It is polished to make vases, eggs and decorative items.

  

It was formed on the sea floor about 60 million years ago and variously contains fragments of fossils of bivalves, bryozoa, corals, echinoid spines and gastropod shells.

 

This piece is a really lovely colour but has fewer fossils than other pieces we have seen - mostly fragments of bivalves.
