This is one of the best fossil fish plates we have ever offered. It is a HUGE Diplomystus dentatus fish from the Green River Formation of Wyoming. This fossil was found in the ''18 Inch Layer'', a layer where the fossils have wonderful detail and great dark color. The fossils from this layer need to be extracted under a microscope to reveal all the detail - this is done with an air scribe and air abrasive. This very large specimen (a full SEVENTEEN INCHES LONG!) has incredible detail, much better than most. The full backbone, ribs, fins, tail, and head are all beautifully preserved and very easily seen. The massive fossil herring is well centered on the unbroken plate of thick shale. And, best of all, the fossil has been professionally framed for optimal display. This is a very large, very aesthetic fish fossil that would display well in any collection, or hang proudly in anyone's home or office.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
