Rustic elegant antiquity of our terracotta brown (Sijilmassa) natural fossil stone tile will add character and warmth to any space. This luxurious sustainable material adds just the right amount of impact to accent walls, floors and other surfaces for a scene-stealing focal point.
Art. Unearthed. Extinct fossils naturally preserved and visible in this hard limestone are nearly half a billion years old and include spiral ammonites and rocket-shaped orthoceras, which inhabited prehistoric seas. Each piece is unlike any other as the placement of the fossils is completely organic and a result of natural chemical and physical geological processes...courtesy of the artist, planet Earth.
Material + Origin
Ancient Seabed Natural Fossil Stone Collection, created from a hard limestone that polishes to a shine, is quarried from the Sahara desert, the location of a prehistoric seabed. Found in a selection of colors that includes terracotta brown, dark brown, black, and gray, it is available as dimensional tiles, slabs and quarry blocks, as well as custom bath and dining surfaces.
Orthoceras, the rocket-shaped fossil figure, and Ammonites, the spiral-shaped fossil form, are the prehistoric sea life naturally preserved throughout this material and still visible today in the Ancient Seabed Natural Fossil Stone Collection, which all began in a primitive ocean during the Paleozoic era nearly a half billion years ago.
