Fossilized Sand Dollars November 11 2013, 0 Comments

I fell in love with fossilized sand dollars when I first discovered them over a decade ago in Mexico. A beautiful Mayan friend collected, carved and polished the little fossils into jewelry quality cabochons. They are around 30 million years old and found in riverbeds near the amber mines in Mexico. These rare and precious stones have been one of my favorites to design with over the years. If you are lucky enough to own one, cherish it, they are hard to find and one of a kind.
