Ammonite

 

Ammonites, beautiful ammonites and also beautifully described in geological terms by many experts on t'internet. But we're giving it to you straight and as it is.

These were out and about in ancient times. They came and went with the dinosaurs and were very good swimmers. If there ever were the dinosaur Olympics ammonites would have got medals for Oceania in most of the swimming events. Dare we say that they are related to the octopus and we sell in several sizes.

Amethyst Candle Holder CH07

Amethyst Candle Holder

 

No two of these amethyst candle holders are the same and they make a unique gift. They can be used with either Tea Lights or small aromatic candles and this popular purple violet variety of quartz emits a gorgeous glow. Amethyst was used as a gemstone by the Egyptians and Greeks thousands of years ago and one of their beliefs (apart from empire building) was that the amethyst gems could prevent intoxication. We don't sell many to the licensed trade, but lots to discerning buyers looking to create a calming peaceful atmosphere.

Single Candle Holder £29.95

Pair of Candle Holders £50

 

Rose Quartz Candle Holder CH01

Rose Quartz Candle Holder


Smoother than the Amethyst candle holder above and emits a pale pink to rose red hue.

It brings in the positive and also makes us money!!

Fossilstone Three Hole Candle Holder ON38

Fossilstone Three Hole Candle Holder


A quality gift for the home and mainly finding their way on to marble work surfaces in contemporary kitchens, although just as pleasing by the fireplace. No two of these are exactly the same so truly an unique gift and given the name "fossilstone" because of the beautiful fossilstones which are fossilized shells markings. These pieces are actually carved from a fascinating limestone found at the foothills of the Himalayas.

Pair of Three Hole Candle Holders £12

 

 

Fossilstone Nine Hole Candle Holder ON32

Fossilstone Nine Hole Candle Holder


A larger candle holder similar to the three hole version above and again made of limestone from the foothills of the Himalayas, with shells and fish fossilized inside. If by now you're starting to wonder what fish and sea shells were doing at the foothills of the Himalayas (as we did) we have it on very good authority that the foothills were once part of the sea bed....some trivia to impress your guests or future husband/wife as you slowly light all nine Tea Lights by the fire.
