Coprolite Fossil Specimen

Explore our remarkable Madagascan Coprolite Specimen, a unique piece that offers a fascinating glimpse into prehistoric life. The name “coprolite” is derived from the Greek words “kopros,” meaning ‘dung,’ and “lithos,” meaning ‘stone.’ This specimen is a fossilised dinosaur dung, where mineral deposits have replaced the original organic material, typically silicates and calcium carbonates.

Coprolite Fossil Specimens such as this are often characterised by their spiral-shaped structure, coprolites have been discovered dating from the Cambrian period to recent times, and they can be found across the globe. They provide valuable insights into ancient ecosystems and the diets of prehistoric creatures, making them an intriguing addition to any collection of natural history artifacts.

History and Uses

The name is derived from the Greek words kopros, meaning dung and lithos, meaning stone. Coprolites are fossilised animal dung. Their original composition has been replaced by mineral deposits, often silicates and calcium carbonates. They can be identified by their often spiral shaped structure. Coprolites have been found from the Cambrian period to recent times, and can be found all over the world.

Fossils (from Latin fossus, literally having been dug up) are the mineralised or otherwise preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms. In ancient times, they were believed to be a gift from the stars and were revered by many cultures. Because of their age, they have been used throughout the centuries as a talisman for protection and long life.

Geological Description

Fossilisation is actually a rare occurrence because organic materials tend to decompose. The process requires the relatively quick preservation of bodily remains. Normally, the remains need to be covered by sediment or trapped in resin as soon as possible. However, there are exceptions to this. Such as, if an organism comes to rest in an anoxic (without oxygen) environment at the bottom of a lake.

The oldest known structured fossils date from 3.5 billion years ago. There are several different types of fossils and fossilisation processes including permineralisation, mold or replacement fossils, compression fossils, resin fossils and trace fossils.

Many fossils available on the market are from Morocco, which has vast deposits of Devonian Limestone, which date back three hundred fifty million years ago. Other areas prominent for fossils are China, the USA, Germany, Canada, Russia and Australia.

Jewellery Care & 1 Year Warranty

In jewellery form, some crystals are more hardy than others. For everyday wearers, we recommend crystals that fall in the Quartz family or have a Moh's hardness level of over 5.5-6. Avoid excessive water exposure, especially in pools or the ocean and any harsh chemicals. Delicate crystals like Amber, Moonstone, Opal, and iron-based meteorites need gentle handling due to potential discolouration or structural risks. Store safely, and clean with care. Rest assured that our 1-year jewellery warranty covers any manufacturing defects. With proper care, we expect your pieces to last many years to come.
