Preserved in a large rectangular block of chalk is this stunning and rare example of this cretaceous chalk sponge. The sponge has been expertly prepared. Examples like this are very seldom seen for sale as most of them end up in museum collections. This is a particularly fine and extremely sought after specimen.
This is a very aesthetic, architectural specimen that consists of many of these lovely large bivalves from this world famous location. The specimen is highly aesthetic and has a cut base for ease of display.
We at Fossils Direct hae had a few of these superb three dimensional sponges. However, none have been of this orange colour which is due to iron staining, it is practically orange. A fantastic specimen with this unique colouration and would make a fabulous addition to any collection.
