Superb Fossil Fish 8.7" Phareodus Green River Formation Wyoming WY COA 10790 For Sale
Superb Fossil Fish 8.7" Phareodus Green River Formation Wyoming WY COA 10790:
A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany this item.
Here is a fossil fish from the world-famous fossil beds of Fossil Lake, Green River Formation, Wyoming. From the Eocene, 52 million years ago.
From the 18" layer, this is a Phareodus testis, a feared predator of the ancient lake. Beautifully preserved, this complete specimen has excellent ray fins, caudal fin (tail) and a strong vertebrae. It also features handsome brownish-black pigment and a mouthful of very cool sharp teeth.
There is also an unprepped Knightia eocaena, just below the Phareodus. A nice bonus for this plate!
This specimen measures approximately 8.7" in length, from tip to tip. The plate is about 10" x 10.3" and weighs 3 lbs. 5.95 oz.
A very nice Phareodus testis for any fossil fish collector.
We are happy to enclose a COA (Certificate of Authenticity). Some words of caution about COA's: Do not let them become a substitute for learning about the specimens. We have been working with fossils and minerals for many years, and we have seen hundreds of very nice-looking COA's, some that are wrong, mis-describing a specimen. In addition, the person selling the item is often the one who writes the COA (potential conflict of interest). Finally, a COA without a photo of the exact item described, as part of that COA, is worthless, as it can later be placed next to any other fossil or mineral. We suggest that instead of relying on a COA, that people read and study the subject.
