Knightia fish were once common in North America and have been found in great numbers in Wyoming, in a fossil bed known as the Green River Formation. This formation is remarkable for its range and quality of fossils and these knightia fish fossils are a great example.
Experts believe that the Green River Formation was created in a period of climate change, towards the world we know to day. These knightia fish fossils are remnants of a unique period in history. Bring their graceful shapes and rich history into your home or give as a great gift.
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 14.5cms long.
