Many hours of preparation have gone into this specimen to reveal these large bony fish tail fins. This must have been off a very large fish that lived some 50 million years ago. A lovely collectors item, one for the drawers.
Preserved in a large phosphatic nodule is this large jaw section with beautifully preserved teeth. This fish was a large predatory fish. Some 50 million years ago the seas around the London area were warm and tropical and contained many exotic marine animals. This specimen has been carefully prepared to reveal the fine detail. One for the collector.
