Artfully designed Septarian, Gingko Leaf and Othorceras Fossils with Copper


Only 1 available

I love the composition and colors in this beautiful piece with ancient fossil and copper. I made a copper gingko tree to enhance them because it is the oldest tree in the world. The stone inside the leaf is a Moroccan Septarian and each one has a different design on the face. To me they look like petroglyphs. I love every one I have seen because they are so creative and earthy in their nature.

I forged the copper leaf, and I chose the gingko leaf because that tree is the oldest tree alive today. I enhanced the piece with coiled copper wire and copper seed beads. And the orthoceras is fairly common, but this one was exceptionally artistic in it's design and carving. The twig is a real twig that was electroformed from one in nature. The wire art brings the piece together in a very artful way. It hangs from a byzantine copper chain.


Orthoceras is an extinct "straight" cephalopod that lived during the Devonian period nearly 400 million years ago. Like other cephalopods they lived inside of their shell, had tentacles they could use to grab food and used jet propulsion, squirting water to move. They are found in very mined in huge numbers from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco which lie on the Northern edge of the Sahara Desert.

Elrathia kingii is a species of trilobite that lived during the Cambrian period approximately 505 million years ago. Their fossils collected in vast numbers from the Wheeler Shale near Delta, UT. Trilobites were hard-shelled, segmented arthropods which dominated Earths' oceans for several hundred million years before going extinct at the end of the Permian period.
