Wet light is the fossil shell of an extinct group of cephalopods that lived in the crustacean over 65 million years ago – the so-called Belemnites. Wet light belongs to the ordinary petrifices and can be found at all beaches in Denmark, but occurs mostly by Møn’s cliff and Stevns cliff. The shape is like a light and can be 8 – 10 cm long and typically has beautiful yellow-brown colors in honey yellow or amber.
