This totally unique Wall Clock has been created from a large section of Triassic (220 million years old) petrified fossil wood from Madagascar. It comes from an Araucaria tree, an extinct type of conifer.
This high quality specimen has been transformed with a new high quality Acctim Quartz Pendulum Clock Mechanism. Silver'pearl like' beads indicate the hours - but can be removed if a more natural look is desired.A wooden subframe ensures this specimen is perfectly aligned with the wall. Wood encloses the clock mechanism and is only visible from the sides. The wood is left natural to allow it to be finished in the exact wall colour if required - this would further enhance the'floating' look.
Only a single screw or sturdy picture pin is required to wall mount. A new Duracell AA battery supplied so this unique addition to the home can be enjoyed as quickly as possible.
