We are including a Genuine Fossil Sponge specimen dated at over 400 million years old for buyers of our Sponges.
Here's some other great Sponge Info:
Sponges are master filters. They can filter an amount of water 100,000 times their size each day! That means a basketball-sized sponge could filter an entire residential pool in one day. Sponges often use chemicals to deter predators from eating them. Scientists have discovered that some of these chemicals may have potential to treat cancer and HIV.
Amber, also known as copal, is created when the resin from a tree becomes fossilized. Most of the Colombian amber (copal) that is found is from the Andes Mountains in South Amberica. It could be up to 16 million years old. Amazing earth science resource or fossil gift.
