This fascinating collection of fossils is a wonderful starter kit for a budding enthusiast. They come in a great presentation box containing information cards for each fossil and a small magnifier to enhance detail and inspire an interest in evolution. Each set contains a cut and polished ammonite, a devil’s toenail (gryphaea), fossil sea urchin, nautiloid, fossil shark tooth and magnifier. Fossils are remains of animals and plants that lived a very long time ago. When they died, their bones, shells, seeds and leaves were buried in mud or sand and over time slowly turned into stone. Fossils tell us which animals and plants lived at different times and how these evolved into the ones we see today. Although very popular with kids and a great educational gift these products are not toys and are not suitable for children under 36 months as they may contain small parts and sharp edges.

This beautiful collection of minerals comes in a great presentation box containing information cards for each mineral. This fantastic collection is the perfect way to inspire interest in the earth’s geology. Each set contains a selection of six mineral pieces, which are pyrite, rose quartz, citrine, amethyst, quartz geode and an agate slice. Minerals make up the rocks that form the Earth’s crust. The atoms within the minerals are arranged in an orderly way, meaning that many of them form attractive crystals and gemstones, which are known for their shine, colour and rarity and are often used in jewellery. Minerals also vary in strength, such as diamonds, which are extremely strong and can easily scratch glass to others like talc which are soft and crumbly. Although very popular with kids and a great educational gift these products are not toys and are therefore not suitable for children under 36 months as they may contain small parts and sharp edges.

A wonderful and beautiful selection of fossils and minerals. The high quality fossils and minerals are presented in a beautiful and sturdy presentation box making it a wonderful and extra special gift. A fantastic range is available so simply select your choice from the selection available. Also a great collectors item. Each mineral or fossil may vary slightly in size as the product is totally natural, however the presentation box is 80mm (W) x 80mm (D) x 50mm (H). The details of the wonderful selection available are:

Agate geode; agate geodes are ancient volcanic bubbles which are partially filled with crystal. This leaves a gorgeous crystalline hollow centre. They are thought to help with effective communication skills and are meant to be good for the nervous system and as an effective healing stone.

Amethyst; since the Victorian times amethyst has been prized for its gorgeous purple colour and it is still one of the most sought after semi-precious gemstones. Creative thinking and meditation are said to be aided by amethyst.

Citrine; an unusual mineral which is formed when amethyst is exposed to great heat which turns it all shades of orange. It is also known as 'the merchants' stone' and is thought to help to maintain a state of wealth.

Fossil Ammonite; ammonites thrived in the oceans during the time of the dinosaurs. They ranged from the size of a penny to the size of a tractor tyre. These specimens are from Madagascar and are about 160 million years old.

Kyanite; kyanite is a high vibration stone and is said to help raise levels of consciousness and to quickly bring stillness and tranquillity. Kyanite is said to reduce confusion and to stimulate the higher mind, increasing the capacity for logical and linear thought. In addition kyanite is believed to stimulate psychic abilities and intuition. It is widely used to enhance and stimulate a perfect aura for meditation.

Orthoceras; these fossils are found in the High Atlas mountains of Morocco and are about 400 million years old. They are a bullet like shell and were once divided into gas filled chambers which kept creatures buoyant in the water. Now fossilised in black limestone and often found in clusters washed together by the ancient sea currents.

Quartz; this is also known as rock crystal, it is clear like glass and is believed to have mystical powers. It grows in amazing structures and each has six sides. The ancient Greeks even thought it was ice and so deeply frozen that it would not melt.

Rose quartz; also known as the 'love stone' and said to help remove negativity which brings peace and calm in relationships. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful natural gemstones and it commonly occurs in its natural form of a chunky mass rather than a crystal.

Please note that as these items are all hand made they can vary slightly from piece to piece. The colours can differ and not all the etchings will be exact to the photos shown on our web site. This means they are unique pieces but as we are never sent anything of a poor quality meaning we are sure you will love the item sent, as the differences are only ever slight. We also like to think a unique Fair Trade and hand made product makes for a nicer gift. Also, on egg items the egg stand may be a different colour to the image as we buy these in mixed bulk colours. They are available to buy separately on the site or if you want a specific colour please contact us to let us know.

The Product

The Kisii Soapstone is mined in south Kenya, not far from Lake Victoria. Once mined it can vary in colour but is a soft stone and easy to handle. It’s firstly cut into manageable blocks and then grated and rasped to the final shapes by the artisans. Each piece is sanded to get the quality finish and then dyed to the required colour/s. Patterns are incised with a very sharp knife by skilled workers and finally the item in polished with a natural wax to create a beautiful finish.

Fair Trade and Environmental Policy

The aim is to buy high quality, ethically sourced and environmentally friendly products from disadvantaged producers from across the developing world to help people trade out of poverty.

Our importer of the Kisii Soapstone items works with individual artisans, co-operatives and small businesses across the developing world. They are recognised by BAFTS, the British Association for Fair Trade Shops, as a fair-trade importer. They make advance payments for materials to help suppliers buy raw materials and this ensures that the producers don’t have to take on debts to complete our orders and regular inspections to check that Fair Trade standards are adhered to.

They also ensure that the workers are paid a fair price for the goods made. They also strive to make sure that men and women are paid the same rate while also aiming to ensure that no children under the age of 16 are involved in the production of any products. Another progression is that home workers produce many of these items, which provides them with a useful additional income whilst allowing them to look after their homes and families.

Regarding the Environmental Policy. All these items are hand-made so no machinery or energy is used in the making of the products. Our importer does not air freight any of these items and they are imported in by sea to reduce the carbon footprint further. © Please do not copy text.
