A Fossil Fish


A Fossil Fish

When you first clapped eyes on this we expect you said: ‘Ah! What a splendid specimen of Dapalis Macrurus!’  Yes? We thought so.

You will also have instantly recognised what a splendid fossil of this perch-like fish this is. It is on a limestone matrix and comes from the Alps of High-Provence in France – from a site that is now closed to further excavation. 

It shows very fine details – bones, fins and so on and is pleasingly central on its stone.

The stone measures 14cm x 10cm and the fish itself is about 6.5cms long.

This fossil fish is Oligocene - a mere 30-35 million years or so old (this seems to us to allow quite a large margin of error – but there we go – in our experience palaeontologists are a law unto themselves)

It would look great on a shelf over the bath.
