A wonderfully detailed Knightia Fish Fossil Plate. Knightia fish were a graceful fish that are found in the Green River Formation in Wyoming, USA. The detail you can see here is particular to the Green River Formation and has preserved not only the shape of the fish, but left the individual scales visible. This makes these Knightia fish fossils a great way to introduce children to the wonder of natural history.
With their smooth shapes and natural stone, these knightia fossils are a subtle addition to your home and make a brilliant 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 15.5cms long.
