Beautiful gift box filled with 4 fossils
This gift box is filled with 4 beautiful fossils and contains:
- a fossil fish,
- a pyrite ammonite from Germany
- a trilobite
- Fossil plants
The fish was found in the Eocene deposition of Green River Wyoming and is between 48 and 55 million years old. The fossil fish occur in the Green River formation in Wyoming (USA). These originate from the Eocene period (part of the Paleogene period). Because the lakes dried up completely during a dry season, mass mortalities happend among these fish that led into these fossil specimens.
This ammonite was found in Germany in the town of Buttenheim near Bamberg. The beautiful golden sheen of this ammonite is immediately noticeable. This color is caused by the iron ore pyrite. During the fossilization of the ammonite, it is not fossilized but 'hyperritised'.
The Trilobites belonged to the arthropods and lived under water. Millions of years ago there were many different species, the trilobite in this box belongs to the genus Calymene and is found in Morocco.
Various fossil plants no less than 350 million years old! Found in Piesberg, Germany. The Piesberg is an old volcano of 188 meters high. It was formed 70 million years ago when an underground volcano pushed deep layers of stone to the surface.
