  • Amazing! Sea fossils embedded in sedimentary rock 300 to 500 million years old is transformed into tables, sinks, ornamental pieces, jewelry. Every piece has visible fossils in rock harder than marble.
  • Amazing fosils, wish i could have a kitchen work top with some of their amazing polished stone.
  • Very knowledgable narrator whose family personally mined for the fossils. Connected to historical facts
  • We took a short tour of the work area where we saw every step of the process of taking the raw stone and turning it into beautiful pieces. Our group bought a variety of small items and they took great care to carefully wrap everything. I am obsessed with getting a dining room table - they will ship it DHL white glove service.
  • Good prices and very informative guide.
