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.
