Large Mounted Prehistoric Pecten Fossil Specimen from the Carboniferous Period

About

This large 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 scallops that have their roots from the Carboniferous period over 350m years ago but still exist in the present day. Fossils can no longer be collected from this site, so it is no longer possible to obtain these specimens except from existing private collections.
