The circular Septarian geological specimen inset top set on four scroll supports on a quatrefoil platform base and four feet.

The Marble:
Turtlestone is an English marble cut from large geological spheres called Septarian Nodules which formed in the Oxford Clay during the English Jurassic period, 150 million years ago. The nodules were discovered during the brick mining process of the early 19th Century and it was discovered that they could be sliced and polished to incorporate in items of furniture or ornaments. Large nodules were extremely rare so Turtlestone is scarcely found being used as a table top. The highly decorative pattern in the marble is created by the golden calcite core running through a greyish clay concretion resulting in a dramatic figuring.
