The gadget's rear section features two kilograms of 24-carat gold and the front frame is made from Ammolite, the oldest rock in the world (over 75 million years old).

To make the gadget even more individual, sections of a 65-million-year-old T-Rex dinosaur thigh bone were splintered and shaved into the Ammolite.

The gadget dubbed the "Gold History Edition" is of a limited edition of only two units to be made.
