Called Landscape Marble, these slabs of stone are a variety of stromatolitic limestone. Stromatolites, which these are examples of, are colonies of fossilized algae and bacteria that have created layers of sediment. In Landscape stones, these layers create patterns that look like the natural world, including land, sky, trees, and clouds. This stone originates from the Penarth group, from South Wales and Southwest England, and dates to the Triassic period.
Large Pair of Landscape Stones
A wonderful pair of large Triassic era Landscape stones of a similar size. The natural process of fossilization has created incredible patterns similar to landscapes. These examples are particularly interesting in that they are mirror images of each other.
Condition: Excellent condition.
