 DESCRIPTION: Untouched rough opalised fossil - clam shell.

More than a 100 million years ago, the central part of Australia was an inland sea, thriving with marine life. As the Sea receded, these sea creatures were left on the sea floor; Shells, bones or cartilage formed cavities in the sandstone or the sea floor. These cavities were then filled with silica and formed the beautiful opalized shells, belemnite pipes,  and prehistoric fossils that we marvel at today.
