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.
Preserved on this piece of Jurassic seabed is a multitude of various fossils consisting of Strigoceras, prorsisphinctes a Gastropod, two Molluscs and a beautifully preserved Belmnite (Passaloteuthis) guard. These specimens take a large amount of time to prepare. A fine addition to any collection.
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.
