Discover the natural art forms created by tectonic forces on Earth in Christie’s online-only auction dedicated to Natural History.

Naturally occurring geological formations and fossils are presented alongside prized minerals and meteorites. Some have been cut and polished to reveal their inner beauty; all are highly sculptural and decorative and sit comfortably in any interior setting.

The fossilized remains of extinct animals – some lived as far back as 500 million years ago, others alongside the Dinosaurs – are a natural fit in a cabinet of curiosity. The sale is led by a fine group of swirling white sandstone formations termed gogottes, originating from Fontainebleau in France.
