10 Million Year Old Fossil Coral Carved into MASKS Timor's Treasures

You can also see our fabulous Sculptural pieces by going to Fossils in the category listings and then clik the link for 10MYO Fossil Coral.

P>An exciting new, yet ancient medium has been used to depict an age old craft.

The carvers of Hane in the central highlands of West Timor, have made use of 6-10 million year old fossillised brain coral, Symphyllia and Platygyra, in the Sunu inline from the Miocene era, to carve these astonishingly effective busts, masks & sculptures. The individual granulation of each piece of coral evokes a very special feeling when carved. Every one unique.

These pieces weather well inside or out and thin coating of a PVC material will ensure that these treasures stabilize as they are prone to dust and will crumble if handled heavily.

After many months I have finally secured a positive identification and status for these amazing corals. The Department of Environment and Water Resources, who acts on behalf of CITES, has agreed that they are a fossil and not a risk as they are a technically a rock. Certification will come in your parcel unless you request otherwise. They have treated to Australian Quarantine Standards.
