Product Description

Unique “flower pot” rock formations carved by the ocean, highlighted in 24-karat gold!

Sold out at the Mint!The Bay of Fundy, between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, is the home of the highest tides in the world, some of which can rise and fall over 50 feet every twelve hours! Over thousands of years, these huge tides have carved out the unique "flower pot" formations at Hopewell Cape, the dramatic Hopewell Rocks. The bases are narrow, but trees and plants  grow atop these amazing natural wonders!
