Barite Rose and agatized fossil coral artisan necklace
One of my favorite gemstones to work with is agatized fossil coral due to its flower patterning and the many colors in which it can be found. What is agatized fossil coral? The gemstone was formed when prehistoric reef-building corals were slowly replaced with agate which is silica rich. The process can take over 20 million years. Other minerals contained in the water determine the colors that appear. Although it's found in Florida and Georgia, the most unique ones are found in Indonesia.
