29" Wide, Framed Fossil Fish Plate - Wyoming
The unbroken slab of shale has been mounted in an elegant, 29.5x21.5", black frame and is ready to be hung on the wall.
Fossil fish from the 18 inch layer split out "ghosted" underneath the surface of the rock. Typically only bumps from the back bone can be seen in faint relief against the surface of the rock. Because of this they typically collect this layer at night using high powered lighting which allow them to better see the shadows from these bumps on the rock. These fish must then be prepared removing all of the matrix from on top of them, a very meticulous and time consuming process.
