Object detail

Credit line
Paramoudra are cylindrical fossils made of a calcium carbonate 'concrete'. They are usually found among stones on the beach, and often have a central hole. They are also known as 'Māori sinkers' because of their shape, which is similar to sinkers used by Māori in earlier times.
