This specimen was collected in the 1980's and this nodule contains a string of large vertebrae preserved on one side and on the flip side are lovely large, three dimensional ribs. All that was needed with this specimen when found was a good wash to remove the surrounding mud/clay. There has been no preparation work whatsoever as we feel that this specimen is best presented in its natural "as found" form.
From the late John Page collection comes this rare, multi-starfish piece from the world famous starfish beds of Girvan. The starfish lie on a bed of broken bivalves which only adds interest to the deposition of the specimen. These are now becoming increasingly scarse to obtain especially from this classic site.
Nautilus fossils from this world famous fossil locality are incredibly rare and this is a stunning, matrix free example which has been beautifully prepared from the surrounding matrix. Within the aperture of the nautilus are two beautiful orange calcified ammonites which only add interest and aesthetics to this beautiful specimen. A highly collectable and sought after item.
Collected in the 1970's comes this very nice split, double fish specimen. To get one good fish is quite rare but to get two is very rare especially one that is preserved outstretched and one that is curved. The specimen is very aesthetic and would look great on any shelf etc. These fish are from a classic locality and are becoming increasingly scarse to obtain.
