I purchased this from Indonesia, I have seen a lot available and was not real expensive. It is stuck in matrix that is very solid, the crab is exposed and polished. Hard to tell if it is real or some kind of cast mold in a concrete mixture for matrix. Wanted to see if anyone knew for sure or not. Is there some possible tests on the matrix to see if it is glued or concrete mixture?

I could very well be wrong but it reminds me of the polished stone carved crabs I used to see when I lived in panama c.z.. they would take stones, carve them into Shapes, most often crabs or other see life and then polish them up. But I differ to others more knowledgeable. I hope I’m wrong but it looks the same.

It looks carved to me, too.

I doubt considerably this is a fossil, but it is an excellent carving. The art geek in me would be proud to own this. Heck, the fossil guy in me would enjoy it to. It is beautiful work by someone that knows their way around stone.
