A fantastic Eocene Bivalve with both valves intact and in life position. The specimen also has the hinges preserved which is an uncommon feature with this classic fossil clam shell. An important addition for the serious collector. Approximately 42 million years old.
Fossils which have been damaged or poorly during their lives are sometimes preserved and are known a "pathological" specimens. This belemnite as can be seen in the images, has got a bent tip. The specimen has been beautifully preserved in solid brown calcite and is almost complete. A fantastic addition to any collection. areal good conversation starter piece.
