In Ancient China, but also in the pre-Columbian cultures of Central America, jade, quartz, obsidian, and onyx were used to make valuable jewellery and artworks. This gave Studio Nucleo the idea for this JADE Stone Fossil: a self-developed rock. A block of wood from a 200-year-old Italian oak was immersed in liquid epoxy resin with green pigment. The cracks, blisters, breaks, and other imperfections were created by the reactions in the synthetic resin.
