Paula says -

"This amazing bear was living in the stone surrounded by tiny fossils for eons until Bernard Laiwakete saw it and brought it out!

"Elimia Agate is a sedimentary rock that contains abundant fossils of tiny creatures including snails called elimia tenera. It was formed millions of years ago along shallow lake edges in the Green River Formation in Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah. Sometimes called record keeper healing stones and used to tap into past events!"
