DENTALIUM FOSSIL

This is a natural specimen  in its host rock.

It was mined in coober pedy.

We have taken the photo wet to high light the fossils.In some specimens you will see bits of opal and fossilized shells.

The mantle of Dentalium species is entirely within the shell. The foot extends from the larger end of the shell, and is used to burrow through the substrate. They position their head down in the substrate, with the apical end of the shell (at the rear of the animal’s body) projecting up into the water. These molluscs live on seafloor sediment, feeding on microscopic organisms, detritus and foraminiferans.

The shells are conical and curved in a planispiral way, and they are usually whitish in color. Because of these characteristics, the shell somewhat resembles a miniature elephant’s tusk. They are hollow and open at both ends; the opening at the larger end is the main or anterior aperture of the shell. The smaller opening is known as the apical aperture

As we have wet the specimen the weight is a guide only

Founded by Paul Sedawie, who also serves as the current president of the Opal Association Inc., our company is fueled by over three decades of experience.

Paul Sedawie embarked on his opal mining journey in 1986 at the Four Mile field in Lightning Ridge, alongside his first partner, Bob Young. It took them six months to uncover a remarkable stone, instilling in Paul a deep respect for the precious gem and the challenges it presents. Today, Paul's eldest son, Peter Sedawie, has taken the reins, while Ross manages our site. This grants Paul the freedom to travel to various opal fields and revel in the breathtaking beauty of this magnificent stone.
