This irregularly shaped fossil mural was quarried from a rare dark limestone layer that we call "Steel Blue Lake". It offers unique brown and gray colors with heavy textures created as water currents etched the sandy lakebed sediment 50 million years ago. The fossils found in this layer are typically exceptionally well preserved as the stone is harder and more compact than other lighter-colored limestone found in our quarry. The fossil fish include a large Diplomysuts dentatus, and a Knightia eocenena. The mural is backed in wood with finished beveled edges. We have attached a two-part French cleat to the back for easy hanging.
The mural ships in a custom-made wood crate, fully insured against loss or damage.
