This beautifully detailed Knightia Fish Fossil Plate is an excellent example from the Eocene Green River Formation.
Knightia fish lived approximately 50 million years ago and their fossils are found in just one location - the Green River Shales in Wyoming, USA. These fish swam in large shoals and make fantastic fossils.
With its fine detail and large size, this fish fossil plate is a wonderful gift for anyone interested in natural history.
This fossil fish has not been enhanced in any way, just the covering layer of limestone has been carefully removed to present a beautiful fossil, showing the relief of the bones, fins and scales.
The fish is 10cms long.
