It's hard to believe that this is not a fossilized flower, but a mineral!
This flower stone is roughly 270 million years old and was naturally formed from a combination of high temperatures and layers of mud compressing at the bottom of the ocean. Celestite and calcite within the mud create the beautiful white flowering crystals with each "petal" being a rhombohedral crystal form. Because the formation of the chrysanthemum stone is uncommon, this stone is considered a gem. Elements with benefits such as iron, zinc, calcium, and selenium make up this mineral, which is perfect for collectors!
