Cesar Gonzales ponders the origins of the universe with this extraordinary sphere on a white onyx stand. He sculpts the petite piece from rare stromatolite. Fossils formed in the Precambrian world, they reached their peak of distribution some 2.2 billion years ago. Each one is unique, and no two ever show the same color and grain.

    The fact that this sphere is made from fossils formed in the Precambrian world some 2.2 billion years ago, makes this a must-have for any mineral collector.

    Awesome sphere, looks amazing. Very heavy feels good. Was surprised how intricate the fossil patterns were from the lime secretions on each layer. Really interesting stuff. Cesar picked out a good piece to sculpt. Hope he chooses more cyanobacteria rock or petrified stuff. They're awesome.
