Large Mounted Pre-Historic Pecten Fossil Specimen from the Carboniferous Period

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This large beautiful group of pectens mounted on a wood base almost appear to have been sculpted from the limestone rock in which they were found in the south of France.
Pectens are known from the Carboniferous period over 350m years ago and still exist in present day.
Fossils can no longer be collected form this site, so it is no longer possible to obtain these wonderful specimens except from existing private collections.
