Dastilbe Fish Fossil on Matrix
A single Dastilbe fish fossil on a stone backing matrix, typically found in Brazil.
The matrix stone measures 50-75MM long approximately. The fish themselves typically measure around 30-50MM long.
Obviously, these sizes can vary, because we’re talking about natural creatures here! The size of every fish differed. The amount of the fish that was preserved will differ; typically only the bones survive.
Fossilised fish make a lovely gift for collectors, and especially for children. No two are ever the same, and they are so easy to relate to.. I have never seen a live trilobite or a raptor roaming the parks, but there are fish in almost every river or canal I walk past.
The pictures you see here are representative of the products and are usually not the exact item you will receive. Where various grades are available we do try to photograph each grade – but some photographs are still on their way!
