Has anyone ever seen anything like this? I'm not even sure what it is. At first I thought it must be shell, but when I examine it and put my teeth on it it feels more like stone,...........it is stone.
I'd love to know more about it.
The man that I bought it from immediately put it up to his eyes,...it was funny, a little creepy,
after the initial eye ball comparison it's curious beauty became captivating.
The back, dark, side of it is amazing too.
The colors have more depth than the photos capture.
It's one of those things that just needs to be shared,
p.s., I want to add that it's clearly not painted, the color emerges from within the stone, it's definitely not applied to the surface.
I added another photo that I found on Flickr~hopefully I'm not doing anything illegal by posting it here. It's remarkably like mine and hails from the environs of Lake Superior.
Thanks for all of the help, Kevin and blunderbuss!
