Coco de Mer

Availability: 1 In Stock

Lodoicea, commonly known as the sea coconut, coco de mer, or double coconut, is a monotypic genus in the palm family.

The sole species, Lodoicea maldivica, is endemic to the islands of Praslin and Curieuse in the Seychelles. The mature fruit is 40–50 cm in diameter and weighs 15–30 kg, and contains the largest seed in the plant kingdom. The fruit, which requires 6–7 years to mature and a further two years to germinate, is sometimes also referred to as the sea coconut, love nut, double coconut, coco fesse, or Seychelles nut. The leaves of Lodoicea have the longest lifespan of any Monocot, nine years to develope in the terminal spike, and then nine more years as a fully functioning leaf, what make a incredible 18 years cycle. Only when Lodoicea begins to produce flowers, which can vary from 11 years to 45 or more, is it possible to visually determine the sex of the plant. Until the true source of the nut was discovered in 1768 by Dufresne, it was believed by many to grow on a mythical tree at the bottom of the sea. European nobles in the sixteenth century would often have the shells of these nuts polished and decorated with valuable jewels as collectibles for their private galleries.

The Coco de Mer tree is now a rare and protected species. The seeds of Lodoicea have been highly prized over the centuries.

This magnificent specimen in mounted in a handmade brass display base and have all the licenses from Seychelles Islands as well the holographic stamp certificate.

Diplomystus dentatus slab

Availability: 1 In Stock

Diplomystus Dentatus fish from the Paleogene, Eocene, 53.500,000 to 48.500,000 years.

An ancestor of the herring family, a very finely boned fish which is extremely difficult to prepare from the Lagerstätte varve layer of the Eocene limestones of the Green River formation 18-inch layer.

These predator fish came from the prehistoric fossil lakes. The lower Eocene deposits of Green River formation was thought to be a large freshwater lake. The calcite would be absorbed by the remains of the fish, transforming their bones into a hard mineralized deposit in the slightly softer and lighter colored limestone shales.

Mounted in a handmade brass frame that can be fixed in three different ways.

Giant Natural Septaria nodule

Availability: 1 In Stock

This misterious giant Septaria Natural nodule, from Madagascar, in a black lacquered wood base.

Septarias are prehistoric marine nodules of bio sedimentary origin followed by dehydration during diagenesis, which today are found as large pebbles in clay soil. The creation of a Septaria is a succession of events along millions years, they form around a core of organic matter (plant or animal). Sediments continue to settle on the nodule, compacting it under their weight, which will flatten it and expel water, while inside microcracks begin to form, amplified by tectonic movements. It is in these shrinkage slots that over time dissolved minerals will crystallize.

Its name comes from the Latin "septum" which means partition, barrier, indeed, when polishing of the nodule reveals and sublimates its elegant marbling of black calcite, millions of years that offer these sumptuous minerals, each piece is unique!

This insect has a protuberance at its head as long as 10–15 millimeters (0.39–0.59 in), looking like a peanut and showing false eyes to resemble a lizard or a serpent. The insect was originally - and mistakenly - believed to be luminescent. When attacked, it protects itself by displaying large, yellow, fake eyes on its hind wings to frighten the aggressor, and releases a foul-smelling substance. The white powder present in the body is secret by the insect itself.

Polished Orthoceras slab

Availability: 1 In Stock

Superb, unbroken slab filled with wonderful naturally occurring orthoceras fossils that was once part of the prehistoric ocean floor over 400 million years ago.

The fossils are exposed and given a high polish to better view the creatures from their surrounding matrix. The slab features very high relief as well as dramatic texture and detail they had tentacles and ink sacs, much like present-day squid.

Except for belemnites, cephalopods had external shells with hollow internal chambers separated by walls called septa.
