Preserved in a squared block of white Dover Chalk, comes this fine and more or less fish head with partial body attached. The fish has been preserved in brown calcite and has wonderful detail throughout. The colour contrast is magnificent. Fish fossils from the chalk are incredibly rare and highly sought after amongst collectors. A rare opportunity to acquire an aesthetic chalk fish.
Carefully prepared out of a squared block of chalk is this quite stunning and highly detailed fish jaw. The fish teeth are pristine and have been preserved in brown calcite which is a lovely colour contrast from the surrounding white matrix. Fossils like this are seldom found and are very prized by collectors of chalk fossils.
Specimens from this well known Welsh fossil location are now becoming scarse due to over-collecting and lack of new exposures. This specimen has been carefully prepared from its surrounding mudstone. A good example either for the drawer or study.
Collected in the 1980's is this very rare fish and wood combination from the Permian period. This is the first example we have seen with this combination preserved. The specimen is in a large plate with a flat back which could be easily mounted into a frame or just hung on the wall as it is. A snapshot of the Permian period !!!
