Coeloma Crab Fossil

Complete nodule from Lyby, Denmark

Here is an exceptionally detailed crab nodule from Lyby, Denmark. 100% genuine, with fantastic preservation throughout. The nodule measures 2.7″ x 2.5″ x 2.3″, with crab measuring 2.5″ x 1.5″ across. Dating from the Oligocene Epoch, this is not to be confused with modern incarnations…This is partly due to the softness of the matrix which is broken during collecting as a matter of course, when the nodules are split to reach the fossil (however 9/10 nodules are found to be barren)… As a result, the nodules must be painstakingly put back together. If everything is done right, it looks like this one! This is a very rare piece indeed. All in all, a stunningly intricate piece of the highest quality.
