Fossilised Coral

Fossilised Coral is collected as cobbles from the west coast of Ireland especially Co. Clare.  It is composed of limestone containing fossilised coral colonies which formed coral beds or small reefs in tropical seas during the Carboniferous geological period, 320 million years ago.  These stones are hand cut and polished to reveal their natural beauty. The corals give the stone a black and white speckled effect which looks fabulous in both the Celtic and more contemporary designs used by Angela in her unique handmade jewellery.
