Coelacanth Devonian Fossil Nodule
This is a nicely preserved, Lower Triassic (247 million year old) Coelacanth fossil from the Karoo Formation of Madagascar.
It is preserved inside of a concretion that has been broken open (perfect two halfs) with great measure.
There are many different types of fossil fish found in these nodules, but the Coelacanths are one of the rarer components of the fauna.
Incredible detail including fins, scales and the bony head structure.
Exceptional piece mounted in a natural marble vertical display.
