Fossil Coral
                                                         ds Fossil Coral
Fossil coral is a natural gemstone formed from ancient coral remains. When prehistoric corals are fossilized through replacement with agate, a variety of naturally occurring chalcedony or microcrystalline quartz, the fossil quartz forms through hardened deposits left by silica-rich waters. These gemstones often have a flower-like pattern from the coral skeletons and occur in a wide range of colors from chalky whites to pinks, to browns, grays, blacks, yellows and reds. AKA - Agatized Coral, Agatized Fossil Coral.

Metaphysically, Fossil Coral is thought to be a grounding stone and is good for bringing about change, promoting inner peace, and working on past life memories. It is also thought to improve blood and air circulation and to heal illnesses of the eyes, skin and stomach.

Kambaba, one of the more rare varieties of Jasper,  is a deep swirling green and black stone. It is made up of microcrystalline quartz commingled with Stromatolites, ancient fossilized colonies created by cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) and other prehistoric microorganisms. These Stromatolites date back more than three billion years and are the oldest known fossils. AKA - Green Stromatolite Jasper, Crocodile Jasper

Metaphysically, Kambaba is thought to soothe nerves, grant peace, and to ground and protect. It is also used to restore balance to the body to help the mind focus and to release negative thoughts and feelings. Kambaba draws wisdom from its ancient life energies and encourages an open heart.
