Aina One of a Kind Jurassic Fossil Marble Nature Sculpture, Unique Collection

$1,927.40

About

This is a unique piece. It is an sculpture made by Nature 150 million years ago, with base of natural stone included (base size: 11.5 x 24.5 x H 2 cm). Each piece is unique and unrepeatable. All Aina’s products are delivered with a certificate of material authenticity. Here we tell you the story of the Jurassic Fossil Marble… You're about to discover something extraordinary! Try to imagine the Earth at the time of the dinosaurs, during the Jurassic period, 150-200 million years ago. It’s hard to move from measuring time in years to do it in millions of years but have in mind that our planet was formed 4.000 million years ago and that the first dinosaurs lived 200 million years ago. Soon after, a seashell called Nerinea appeared. Nerinea is an extinct genus of fossil sea snails which inhabited the Earth during the Mesozoic Age, between the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, between 170 and 100 million years ago. In Zucaina, an inland town in the province of Castellón (Spain), there is a deposit with an incredible concentration of Nerineas fossils. This area was at one time submerged under a shallow sea in what would end up being the Iberian Peninsula. It is a seabed from the Jurassic period (dated between 163 and 152 million years) which sedimented during millions of years, trapping in its interior an exceptional concentration of Nerineas fossils. This makes this quarry a unique place in the World. The most superficial layer of the quarry has been exposed to the weather during thousands of years, suffering from natural erosion caused by the wind and the rain. This phenomenon has exposed the fossils in relief, making possible the experience of touching and feeling fossils of creatures which lived 150 million years ago. This finish cannot be replicated using the erosion processes which are applied to natural stones, what makes each piece completely unique and unrepeatable natural wonders of art. All these objects developed with the superficial layer material, belong to Aina’s Unique Collection. Only some pieces has all the faces with fossils in relief, they are carefully selected for this Unique Nature Sculptures Collection.

It is a legacy so that history does not fall into oblivion and reminds us of the beauty of our roots. A past that projects future. Nerinea is an extinct genus of fossil sea snails which inhabited the Earth during the Jurassic period, between 160 and 150 million years ago. In Zucaina, an inland town in the province of Castellón (Spain), located at 800 meters above sea level and 60 km away from the coast, there is a deposit with an amazing concentration of nerinea fossils. Unique and exclusive. Jurassic Marble is a unique product that brings an elegant raw aesthetic to the most exclusive architectural and interior design projects. Aina offers two collections of products: - Living Collection, objects made in Jurassic Marble, its extraordinary particularity lies in the concentration of nerineas fossils in each strata. - Unique Collection, has the most unique and unrepeatable pieces. Each piece is different from the rest, making them exclusive and scarce, keeping inside the footprint of a 150 million years old life. The material is found on the surface, where natural erosion has molded the particular relief that pronounces its beauty, leaving the nerinea fossils exposed in relieve, making possible the experience of feeling fossils of creatures which lived 150 million years ago.
