If you're looking for an unusual showpiece specimen from the Ice Age, look no further. This fully articulated leg and paw from Ursus spelaeus is certain to make an impressive impact. Due to regulations & tariffs, combined with criminals making collecting increasingly more difficult and dangerous, his type of material from Romania has become very difficult to obtain over the last couple of years. However, we were still fortunate enough to be able to aquire a few specimens from the region.

Pyrite & Quartz Face (From Our Private Collection)
Learn More

When we came across this unusual specimen, the first thing we saw was that when placed in an upright position it looks like the face of a Conquistador! So unusual, we had to put it in our private collection. But, now that we've enjoyed it for some time, we've decided to make it available for a nice new home. The Pyrite development blends perfectly with the quartz 'face'. Even the small natural fault line is perfect, giving the piece an appearance of a mouth. A display stand is of course included.

A very cool & unusual piece, in our opinion.
