This relic of the ancient seas was discovered in Kenya, far inland from today's coastal region. These fossilised clams are rarely found by miners excavating calcium carbonate (limestone) for the building industry, however, now a team of specialists and local miners are using technology to locate the clams in the mines. This particular example was the first one found by the team using Ground Penetrating Radar. The vendor will be donating 20% of his sale proceeds to a women's outreach project in Kenya
