I found it fascinating to watch the workers in the factory we visited in Erfoud. We were on a two week tour of Morocco. The factory featured in today’s post was one of our stops on our guided tour. The fossils are unearthed in a nearby desert. They are then processed in one of several factories, cutting them to various shapes.

After being made into plates and bowls, fountains and table tops they are polished and placed on sale in the adjoining retail outlet. Many other items are made as well. I would have loved to have been able to afford one or more of the items for sale, but shipping costs to Australia would have been prohibitive.
