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 2.5 billion years ago, others alongside the Dinosaurs – are a natural fit in a cabinet of curiosity. Highlights include a fine group of white sandstone formations termed gogottes, a select group of sculptural iron meteorites, and a large fossil crocodile that inhabited the Tethys Ocean 180 million years ago.
